The Queen’s Six

Saturday, October 20, 2018  8:00pm

The Queen’s Six were established in 2008, the 450th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name.

Based at Windsor Castle, all the members of The Queen’s Six are also Lay Clerks of St George’s Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls. The Chapel Choir, which consists of boy trebles and twelve professional adult male singers, performs some eight services a week, as well as at private and state occasions, often before the Royal Family.

“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. “ – Stephen Pritchard – The Guardian
