The King's Singers

Two days ago I went to see The King's Singers. Honestly, I had never heard about them, but a friend of mind told me that were really good. They are good indeed. So I bought a ticket and went to Sala Koncertowa, here in Warsaw. They sang a cappella for about 90 minutes, but it looked like half an hour. Their amazing voices made me travel back in time to the 16th century while they were singing music written by Orlando Di Lasso (1532-1594) and the Polish composer and organist Mikolaj Zielenski (1550-1616).




In addition, they also sang five songs written by Pawel Lukaszewski ( born 1968), who appeared on stage, to everybody's joy.



The entire concert was sung in Latin except for the last 30 minutes in which they spent some time singing popular American songs from the 1920's and 30's.


I had a great time and hope to see them again.
