The King's Singers
"Flanders & Swann and Noel Coward" (Vinyl)

This isn't one of the Singers' forays into medieval song or renaissance madrigal. Rather, what we have is an homage to the comedic songwriting duo of Flanders and Swann and to the tunes of Noel Coward. Each song is pretty hilarious and its even more remarkable that the Singers' ability to articulate and annunciate means that every word is heard in striking clarity.
The Singers' good humor is evident in this album as is their trademark sense of ensemble and tone.
