The King's Singers are now in their 50th year and have featured 24 different singers as members over the years. Their repertoire is unusual for a group made up of such impecable musical craftsmen: a mix of populaar music as well as startlingly lovely arrangements of well-known classics and newly-commissioned material. They're Grammy winners, Emmy winners, and hold a place in the Gramophone Hall of Fame. 2018 marks 50 years of wonderful music recorded and performed by the King's Singers, and today we have two of them with us: baritone Christopher Gabbitas and tenor Julian Gregory. Today they share selections from a new 50th year collection of recordings called "Gold", and their thoughts and persperctives on the long and successful career of the group.
