The Queen's Six

Classical Music Alive 23/24

From Windsor with Love

Based at Windsor Castle, a cappella ensemble The Queen’s Six brings you a programme mixing genres and styles from 500 years ago, up to the present day. Showcasing love songs from the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, pieces heard at recent major Royal events (at which members of the group have sung), love songs from the 20th century, and all delivered with the group’s signature wit and charm, there’s something in there for everyone!
