The King's Men of King's College Choir Present "After Hours"
Coming in July, The King’s Men, a close harmony group from the Choir of King's College Cambridge, will release their first collection of popular repertoire: After Hours. The King's Men have previously released CDs of folk songs and spirituals, Christmas close-harmony music and two very successful albums of early renaissance music on the Signum label.
The entertaining new disc on the King's College label features the group's full fourteen voices in tracks such as "Get Around" and "Minnie the Moocher", a reduced complement of ten on "September", all the way down to one-to-a-part seven man singing on "Old Man River" and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square". The majority of the album was recorded live in a semicircle, as for a concert, and without digital systems, except for three tracks "Call Me Maybe", "Forget You" and "I Want You Back" which were recorded in studio. Listeners are sure to delight in the purity of the a cappella voices, and diverse selection of songs.
