This album recollects, and celebrates, some of the choral music heard on royal occasions in England during the lifetime of HM Queen Elizabeth II. The main focus is not on the pomp and pageantry of coronations, but rather on the more personal family events of weddings and funerals where music plays a different role, less ceremonial and more reflective of a wide range of private emotions, often being chosen by those most closely involved. Ten royal occasions [listed chronologically below] are represented, and the programme – a personal and partial selection, inevitably – is rounded out with Benjamin Britten’s Choral Dances from Gloriana, the opera he conceived as a loyal tribute in Queen Elizabeth’s coronation year.


recorded 16th January 2012 in the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban and 17th January 2012 in the Temple Church, London
