Renaissance music, modern pop and jazz?
It is all the same for this “royal” group...
 
The Queen's Six vocal ensemble was established in 2008 on the 450th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name. Elizabeth I was a great patron of arts. She often commissioned compositions and performances for herself and her court. The famous “six” in her time were the four Thomases: Th. Tallis, Th. Tomkins, Th. Morley and Th. Weelkes together with Orlando Gibbons and William Byrd. Today they are comprised of Dan, Tim, Nick, Dom, Andrew and Simon, Lay Clerks of St George's Chapel and members of the Chapel Choir located in the royal country home of Windsor Castle. Their task is to humor the royal family with their vocal skills, sing in their daily services, as well as on private and official occasions, such as royal weddings. Their harmony, exceptional musical skills, irresistible ease and charm make them a unique ensemble. Their broad repertoire, aimed at a wider audience, extends from austere medieval chants, to florid Renaissance polyphony, lewd madrigals and haunting folk songs to jazz and pop arrangements. The Queen's Six have appeared in major music festivals and many musical series in the United Kingdom, Austria, and Spain. Individually, the six regularly work with famous vocal ensembles, such as The Cardinall’s Musick, Collegium Vocale Gent, Gabrieli Consort, Exaudi, King’s Consort and The Sixteen. Q6, as they are known for short, have released several recordings and marked their 10th anniversary with a two-week American tour in April 2018. In their first concert in Croatia, the charming six will present the royal taste in music to the Zagreb audience!
