Four accounted for more than half of the hits from the folk era, including “Hang Down Your Head, Tom Dooley,” “The Green Leaves of Summer” and “There’s a Meetin’ Here Tonight.”
For more than 30 years, the King’s Singers have been delighting audiences around the world with their incomparable musicianship and a repertoire ranging from mediaeval to renaissance, romantic to contemporary, and folk and pop. They have performed in most of the world’s leading concert halls as well as in many European cathedrals, the Hollywood Bowl and Shea Stadium. They have recorded more than 70 albums, including albums with the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
