Notes and Editorial Reviews

The King's Men is the close-harmony vocal group formed by the current choral scholars of King's College, Cambridge. After the success of After Hours, for their latest album on the college's own label, they showcase the lighter side of their seasonal repertoire. Unlike many close-harmony groups, The King's Men record together, balancing their voices acoustically instead of tracking each voice individually. This results in strong musical cohesion and a more authentic sound. The King's Men have appeared on UK primetime TV, including BBC's The One Show, and regularly promote their releases in-store and online.
