For some people, The King’s Singers are inextricably linked to the music of The Beatles. In our concerts, iconic songs by that ‘other British boyband’ go down a treat with audiences all over the world. This is partially thanks to the 1986 King’s Singers album ‘The Beatles Connection’, which featured 19 arrangements of their songs, the opening track of which is Bob Chilcott’s (b1955) arrangement of Penny Lane. This is Lennon and McCartney’s great hit from 1967, which tells about the weird goings-on in that Liverpool street, and which features an eccentric but thrilling key-change between verse and chorus.
