Pachelbel: Vespers - The King's Singers, Charivari Agreable
The ensemble is unbeatable. The six King's Singers blend superbly, yet each becomes distinctive and expressive in their prominent moments...Charivari Agréable in turn play as if singing, breathing between phrases and virtually texted in musical dialogue...Not to be missed.

A truly fascinating project: the early music experts Charivari Agréable, directed by Kah-Ming Ng, are joined by The King’s Singers to create world première recordings of some of Johann Pachelbel’s Vespers. Reconstructed in part by Kah-Ming Ng, the works call for 5-part choir and 6-part string orchestra, creating a perfect opportunity for collaboration between these two world-class groups.
