HASH(0x9d4e45e8) étoiles sur 5 Impeccably performed, adds some variety to your collection. 13 décembre 2000
Par Paul Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The King's Singers, a spinoff of the famous choir of Kings College, Cambridge, is a unique ensemble. Technically a close harmony ensemble, the addition of the countertenor gives the group a unique sound. While they are capable of unparalleled beauty, they can't play it straight for too long, and launch into humorous parodies and inventive variations when you least expect it.
Every christmas album draws from a large pool of songs we all expect to hear. The better ones add some variety, which is present here in spades not only in the material but in the arrangements. Unique features of this recording are a number of non-English carols including Gaudete and Riu, riu, chiu, as well as an original variation on Eine Kleine Nachtmusique (hence the album title). The use of dissonance in their arrangement of the Coventry Carol is a bit unsettling to these ears, but does not detract from the album as a whole.
Reviews of Christmas albums often contain the phrase, "If you could only buy one album . . ". Well, if you could only buy one album, this is probably not the one. This is not your father's Christmas CD. On the other hand, some of us appreciate a little variety now and then, and the quality of the singing here is so impeccable that this album is impossible to pass up.

HASH(0x9d4e49f0) étoiles sur 5 Among My Top 10 Christmas Recordings 25 décembre 2002
Par K. B. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
King's Singers maintains the highest standard for all those who aspire to create spine-tingling a cappella harmony. Somewhat akin to the small number of their peers worldwide, no style seems off limits to their abilities. But certain aspects set the King's Singers apart. Perhaps it is their early and consistent training in the English choral discipline, or the many, years of touring together in one combination or other. Their most remarkable quality is their quintessentially English sound -- the pipe-like tone produced especially in the mid- to upper registers -- that is at once remarkably free of vibrato, but still alive with overtones. If one listens closely to the solo parts, it becomes evident: the sound isn't produced merely by excellent group intervallic intonation, but by individual voices capable of producing overtones. Thus, it's the sound you can't hear that takes your breath away.
Because the recording is so excellent on the whole, one disappointment stands out: I wish that Coventry Carol had been saved for another recording. The dissonances conjure up distressing images at odds with the overall effect they seem to have been trying to accomplish with the recording, and I can certainly imagine that in another context, I might have been interested and emotionally moved, rather than unsettled and annoyed.
In any case, this has remained for years one of my favorite Christmas recordings, and I have to give it 5 stars.

HASH(0x9d4e4a68) étoiles sur 5 Remarkable Harmonies 14 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I love this cd. It is the King's Singers doing what they do best - close harmony with feeling and depth in performance. The only caveat I have with this cd is Patapan and Farandole. It gets a bit rambunctious and I'm not fond of the loud dissonances. It seems of out keeping with the rest of the cd, but just program your cd player to skip it. This is one wonderful Christmas cd.

HASH(0x9d4e4bd0) étoiles sur 5 a voice teacher and early music fan 28 novembre 2006
Par George Peabody - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
WELL!!!THIS IS DIFFERENT!!!!!

The King's Singers come to us steeped in the 500 year old English tradition of choral singing; and that's fine with me.!!!There are 6 singers in this group (the personnel change from time to time)namely: Jeremy Jackman and Alastair Hume (countertenors)- Robert Chilcott (tenor)- Bruce Russell and Simon Carrington (baritones) and Stephen Connolly (bass). They are very capably accompanied by the City of London Sinfonia and Brass Quintet conducted by Richard Hickox.

An added PLUS is the great Kiri Te Kanawa who sings an arrangement by Daryl Runswick entitled "A Little Christmas Music (Medley a la Mozart)". It's a hodge-podge of Mozart melodies sewn together in a rather haphazard manner, and meant to be humorous. I guess this type of composition does not appeal to me personally, and I'm sorry that Kiri's glorious voice was wasted. However, that's only MY opinion; I am certain others may disagree.

This album is really a mixture of Christmas tunes and that's partly what makes it interesting. And, of course it is masterfully sung by the King's singers;I enjoy all their discs; especially the recording of Gilbert and Sullivan tunes. Some of the arrangements on this disc are somewhat esoteric, and I'm not too fond of the very STRANGE arrangement (again by Daryl Runswick) of the Coventry Carol, but 'to each his own'. Their opening selection:"Here We Come a-wassailing" (arr. Robert Chilcott) is a great opening number and I must say that it's the best arrangement I have ever heard of this selection.

Let's face it:the KING'S SINGERS are perfection. But don't forget our American group:Chanticleer.

HASH(0x9d4e4f30) étoiles sur 5 A Very Mixed Bag 15 août 2003
Par David A. Kemp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've often admired the King's Singers' performances, and of course they are a famous and accomplished ensemble, noted for the precision of their close-harmony singing, so I was looking forward to this CD. I regret to say that I find it a very mixed bag, on the whole disappointing. Unfortunately the reliable executant skills of the King's Singers are not matched here by their judgment and taste in choosing arrangements--perhaps there was too great a push for mixing it up, adding variety, "something different." The resulting arrangements are wildly uneven, some of them unattractive and tasteless in varying degrees from mild to dreadful. They range from the very good (bands 7 and 18: straightforward a cappella close-harmony, which is what these singers do best), to exotic (band 16), to schmaltzy (band 5), to busy (band 8), to campy (bands 11 and 19), to cutesy (bands 3 and 6), to terminally cutesy-poo (bands 4, 11, and 19). "Deck the halls," for example, is done in by its arch, cutesy-poo arrangement, as is "White Christmas," which even includes a bizarre, wholly gratuitous interpolation of a bit from Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije, God knows why!
Band 12, "The Coventry Carol," the longest cut on the CD, demands special mention: it is downright awful. The annotator of this CD writes cosily, "And of course there are the old traditional English Christmas songs, all mulled wine and mince pies." Nothing could be less descriptive of what we get here, where the misguided, pretentious, weird, grotesquely ugly, far-out dissonant-modern arrangement does its utmost to pervert and spoil this lovely old English carol, twisting and distorting it into something almost unrecognizable; this cut is a real horror. (Sir David Willcocks, the famed King's College choirmaster under whom the King's Singers trained and sang as youths, would be appalled. The man responsible for this travesty, one Daryl Runswick, also arranged two other selections; his consistently tasteless arrangements comprise three of the four worst on the CD.)
The performing forces vary from the a cappella singers to accompaniments with brass ensemble or orchestra. The variable but undistinguished engineering (EMI's Abbey Road studios, 1989)--over-processed, over-bright, hard-edged, and occasionally canned-sounding--is an additional drawback. If you like traditional Christmas music (as I do) you might want to think twice before buying this CD. At least try to listen to it first. Caveat emptor.
