CD Reviews

You must buy this!

"There's not much I can say about this album. It's perfect. Completely a cappella, it shows off everything that make the King's Singers one of the world's most masterful vocal ensembles. My two personal favorite tracks are "She's Like the Swallow" and "If Music Be the Food of Love." The solo on "She's Like the Swallow," a sad Canadian folksong, is very beautiful. Tracks such as "La valse a mille temps" and "Down With Love" add a certain amount of humor to the collection.I do not regret purchasing this album in any way. It represents some of the best work that the King's Singers have to offer. You must buy it."
Very, very, very (did I mention Very?) good!

"A wonderful selection, beautifully performed! Some of these songs I have wanted to hear and own for so long!An Silvia (Schubert) = Who is Sylvia: they sing a voice-only arrangement that is arguably an improvement of Schubert (okay, pax, you purists). As you may know, this is a setting by Schubert of a poem by Shakespeare. It is just marvellous.In my estimation, this CD is worth getting for Sylvia alone.Arch"

"Es dificil dejar de sentir admiración por este extraordinario ensamble vocal Inglés. Su capacidad interpetativa es amplísima y la forma en que sus voces se acoplan es inmaculada.En este disco interpretan arreglos de canciones de amor (y tambien de desamor) de diferentes épocas y compositores.TODO el disco es una mágnifica experiencia musical :el humor de "Chitarra d'amor",la belleza de "She's like the swallow" o el dulce desencanto de "Quand tu dors près de moi"; mencionando algunos ejemplos.
La unica objeción que tengo es que el no esten integrados todos los textos en el librillo del CD.
Yo recomendaría a cualquier amante de la música a escuchar este CD lo mas pronto posible."
