Vocal Music Masters King’s Singers and Sarband Tour North America Exploring Sacred Traditions

Bloomington (Indiana), USA –
King’s Singers
and Middle Eastern
early music specialists,

, will tour North America this fall with the
program from their new release
Sacred Bridges
The new album reveals similarities between the Jewish, Christian and
Muslim faiths. Using these sacred texts as a bridge, the artists aim to reach a
place of understanding and tolerance between the adherents of the three major
faiths – a shared foundation for trust. Settings of the Psalms of David, revered
and extolled in each of the three monotheistic religions, are by composers from
the 16th and 17th centuries, performed in Hebrew, French and Turkish.The King’s Singers
