The King's Singers were officially founded in 1968 when six until recently choral students from King's College Cambridge gave a concert at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. The composition by chance consisted of two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and this unique formation has been maintained to this day. For more than fifty years, the ensemble has set the gold standard in a cappella singing on the world's biggest stages. It is renowned for its unsurpassed technique, musicianship and versatility, which stem from the group's rich heritage and its aspiration to revive an extraordinary series of new and unique works, collaborations and recordings. The extensive discography has earned the ensemble numerous accolades, including two Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, and a place in the Gramophone Magazine Hall of Fame.
