The King's singers - tenor Paul Phoenix, counter-tenors Robin Tyson and David Hurley, baritones Gabriel Crouch and Philip Lawson, and bass Stephen Connolly - perform a unique blend of ancient and modem madrigals. Interspersed with songs from The Triumphs of Oriana - a 1601 collection in praise of Queen Elizabeth I - are seven new madrigals which have been specially commissioned from leading British composers and poets to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
The concert is preceded by a film about the modern-day collaborations, and a conversation between Charles Hazlewood and some of those involved in the project.
