“The close musical rapport that develops when six men sing together every day, as the Queen’s Six do, is very much in evidence on this, their impressive debut album…They bring seamless blend and balance…” --- The Guardian
We are so excited to be able to bring the The Queen’s Six to the Lane Series! Established in 2008, the 450th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth I, The Queen’s Six is the professional male vocal ensemble of Queen Elizabeth II and her family. The ensemble resides within the walls of Windsor Castle, and the members are also Lay Clerks of St. George’s Chapel. They perform around eight services a week, as well as at private and state occasions, often before the Royal Family. In fact, the members just sang as part of a larger ensemble at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We present them during a rare time in which they are allowed to leave the castle to bring their repertoire --- which includes austere early chant, florid Renaissance polyphony, lewd madrigals and haunting folk songs, and upbeat jazz and pop arrangements --- to the wider public.
