About The King's Men

Close Harmony
The Choral Scholars of King's College, in their secular guise. Perform repertoire from the Middle Ages to arrangements of current chart hits

The King’s Men is the close harmony group formed from the Choral Scholars of the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge. As Choral Scholars they follow the daily routine of Chapel services throughout term, as well as undertaking a busy concert and recording schedule in the vacations. The Choir is, of course, most famous for the broadcast of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on radio each Christmas, and its companion programme, Carols from King’s, on BBC television. The King’s Men, however, functions separately from the main Choir, and is run entirely by the members of the group itself. It performs regularly around Britain, and has performed as far afield as North America, Australia and Hong Kong. Plans for the coming year include making a CD of modern pop and jazz songs, which will be issued on the King’s College label. In addition the group will perform a number of concerts in the USA, followed by a tour of Britain in July.
