I've long been a fan of the King's Singers, and their tendency to span a wide variety of musical genres is one of the main reason. This time around, they have folk songs of the British Isles, and have some quite fantastic renditions of some well-known songs. If you enjoy the King's Singers, I don't need to explain why this is a great CD. If you haven't heard them, and enjoy vocal music, I'd highly recommend giving them a shot.

I love the King's Singers! Their voices blend perfectly: deep, deep bass and high tenor falsetto. This is a lively collection of traditional Celtic, English, and Welsh songs, many of them a capella. This CD is like a sampler platter of music from the British Isles. I love Skye Boat Song, Loch Lomond, and Going to Towyn.
