A pure and perfect sound - without any vibrato, but full of warmth. No one who has ever heard the Hilliard Ensemble will forget the impression. The farewell of this award-winning world-class vocal chamber group will be sad news to many classical music fans. Now, four decades since the beginnings of the Hilliard Ensemble in London, remains a big farewell tour which will lead the Ensemble to many European as well as American and Canadian cities - and their great discography. The 3-CD box set "The Hilliard Sound" features great recordings from the 80s.
