The exquisite harmonies of one of Britain’s best-loved vocal ensembles, in a beautiful central London church.
British folksong favourite, ‘Greensleeves’ has been given a choral reshaping in an exquisite new performance by The King’s Singers, against the backdrop of St-Martin-in-the-Fields’ unique warped window.
Filmed at the central London church for Classic FM, the performance opens in the ensemble’s signature a cappella style, with a chorus of immaculately placed ‘doos’ in the place of an instrumental backing.
Watch the performance above.
During the session, filmed in November 2021, The King’s Singers also performed a stunning rendition of the spiritual ‘Steal Away’, as well as two Christmas carols from their new album: ‘Balulalow’ and ‘Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day’.
