The King's Singers

King's Singers at 40

Saturday 21 June 2008 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

To celebrate the King's Singers' 40th anniversary, guest presenter Robert Hollingworth is joined by one of the founder baritones of the group, Simon Carrington, and two current members David Hurley and Christopher Gabbitas. They look back at the 16th and 17th century repertoire covered by the King's Singers since they formed in 1968, and talk about their approach to performing sacred and secular music from this time.
