Cheltenham College Choral Festival: The Queen's Six
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.
Now Dan, Tim, Nick, Dom, Andrew and Simon have come together to bring their unique style of entertainment to a much wider audience. Their repertoire extends far beyond the reach of the choir stalls: from austere early chant, florid Renaissance polyphony, lewd madrigals and haunting folk songs, to upbeat Jazz and Pop arrangements.
Based at Windsor Castle, the members of The Queen's Six are Lay Clerks of St George's Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls. This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family at both private and state occasions. Most significantly however, it is the familiarity of living and singing together in Chapel every day that lends this group its distinctive closeness and blend, as well as an irresistible informality and charm.
Individually, members of The Queen's Six have appeared in many of the most prestigious vocal ensembles on the circuit, including Tenebrae, The Tallis Scholars and Polyphony. Their repertoire extends far beyond the reach of the choir stalls: between austere early chant, florid Renaissance polyphony, lewd madrigals, haunting folk songs and upbeat Jazz and Pop arrangements, The Queen’s Six can provide anything from private party or wedding reception entertainment to full concert programmes.
