Following Tom Lehrer's decision in 2020 to release almost 100 of his songs into the public domain (for anyone to perform and adapt without permission) The Queen's Six take up the offer with relish in this album of a cappella renditions of his "catchy and savage musical satire". 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 Ms 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 it's distinctive closeness and blend, as well as an irresistible informality and charm.
