The Queen’s Six
Alto: Elisabeth Paul, Tom Lilburn
Tenor: Nicholas Madden, Dominic Bland
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 the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and
in 2021, three members of the group sang at the funeral of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of
Edinburgh. 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, lewd 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 will be releasing a recording of pop love songs, their first professional
pop album.
Recent and upcoming tours include the group’s first trips to Bulgaria, Poland and
Denmark, and return trips to the Baltic States, Germany and the USA.
