And then there's Roy Goodman. With an ease and control at the top of the range that copes even with conductor David Willcocks's decidedly deliberate tempos, Goodman's is a treble voice that still inspires today.

. . . [it's doubtful if any recording] will prove more enduring than this celebrated performance of Allegri's "Miserere" . . . the richly communicative singing of King's remains the ideal, however far removed it may be from the orginal intentions of Allegri. The "Miserere" is accompanied here by some classic Palestrina performances, which are still as fresh as when they were recorded in 1964 . . . the sound is excellent. A fabulous disc.
