THE ARTISTS

The Queen’s Six, vocal ensemble

Alto: Tom Lilburn, Elisabeth Paul
Tenor: Dominic Bland, Nicholas Madden
Baritone/Bass: Andrew Thompson, Simon Whiteley

Based at Windsor Castle, members of The Queen’s Six make up part of the Lay Clerks of St George’s Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls. This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family at both private and state occasions. In 2018, this included singing for the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle, now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex; in 2021, three members of the group sang at the funeral of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh; and in 2022, members of the group sang at the Committal part of the official funeral services for Queen Elizabeth II. Most significantly however, it is the familiarity of living and singing together in Chapel every day that lends this group its distinctive closeness and blend, as well as an irresistible informality and charm.

Individually, members of The Queen’s Six have appeared in many of the most prestigious vocal ensembles on the circuit, including The Tallis Scholars, Tenebrae and The Sixteen. Their repertoire extends far beyond the reach of the choir stalls: from austere early chant, florid Renaissance polyphony, bawdy madrigals and haunting folk songs to upbeat jazz and pop arrangements.

Since 2019, the group has recorded on the Signum Classics label, releasing albums of British folk songs, Hispanic Renaissance music, and arrangements of the songs of Tom Lehrer. In 2022, they released a recording of pop love songs, their first professional pop album.

Recent and upcoming tours include the group’s first trips to Bulgaria, Norway and Denmark, and return trips to the Baltic States, Germany and the USA. In February 2023 the group made its début at New York City’s Town Hall.

Other highlights of The Queen’s Six’s 2022-23 season included an appearance on Late Night with Stephen Colbert, an interview on CBS Sunday Morning as part of the station’s tributes to the life of Queen Elizabeth II, and a feature story in People Magazine.
