The Queens Six - 1.jpg


Based at Windsor Castle, the members of The Queen's Six make up half 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, held in St George’s Chapel. 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 Sixteen, The Tallis Scholars and Tenebrae. Their recordings include the Christmas 2015 cover CD for BBC Music Magazine ((Lo, how a rose e’er blooming), a CD of secular Tudor music entitled Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court, and a disc of some of their much-loved pop and jazz arrangements, The mood we’re in…

Recent and upcoming tours by The Queen's Six include Austria (Salzburg and Vienna), Germany (Munich and Dresden), Switzerland (Bern), Greece, and North America (including New York, St. Louis, Denver and Toronto).

Their program, "Royal Windsor: Then and Now," explores music throughout the ages associated with The Royal Family and Windsor Castle, from songs written by King Henry VIII, music dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I, to pieces and composers heard at the recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and folk, jazz and pop arrangements by present-day members of the St George’s Chapel Choir.

Hear The Queen’s Six sing Thomas Morley’s madrigal “Hard by a crystal fountain” here.
