About

Following the critical acclaim of their debut album ‘Music of the Realm’, The Queen’s Six return to Resonus with a programme of secular madrigals from the same six English Renaissance composers all associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group take their name.

Entitled ‘Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court’, The Queen’s Six present a recital of well- and lesser-known works by Morley, Weelkes, Tomkins, Byrd, Tallis and Gibbons, with various themes of ‘Royalty’, ‘Planets’, ‘Ballets’, ‘Birds and Flowers’, ‘Dedications’ and ‘Love and Death’.

‘The close musical rapport that develops when six men sing together every day, as the Queen’s Six do, is very much in evidence on this, their impressive debut album, recorded at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, where they are lay clerks in the choir. They bring seamless blend and balance to music from the reign of Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name.’ - The Observer
