About

The Queen’s Six releases their debut album with a sumptuous selection of music from the golden age of English polyphony.

Recorded in the extraordinary surroundings of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle – where each member of The Queen’s Six is a Lay Clerk – Music of the Realm features six composers associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group gets its name.

For their first Resonus album the group have selected a programme of both well and lesser-known works by six composers who wrote music for and during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I – William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, Thomas Tomkins, Thomas Weelkes, Thomas Morley and Orlando Gibbons. The recording is accompanied by an essay from early music scholar and conductor, Peter Phillips.
