The coronation of Charles II was the glorious cel - ebration of the restoration of the monarchy follow - ing the commonwealth under Oliver (later Richard) Cromwell. The return of the monarch was sealed in early May 1660 and he arrived in l ondon on 29 May. The official coronation took place almost one year later. i t was grand political theatre and a festive pa - triotic statement, forming the termination of a year full of celebrations. i ts symbolic value was increased by the fact that the royal entourage consciously followed the great royal celebrations of the past. Originally planned for 7 February, the date was post - poned until 23 April, the name day of St. g eorge, patron saint of England. Thus the coronation was an act of state at the same time, extending far be - yond the personal. But the date was not only very well chosen politically, but it also turned out that the large-scale celebration could not be organised as quickly as originally planned. This was because the King had to rebuild his royal household; some of the insignias of his power required at the coro - nation also had to be manufactured anew because they had been sold during the time of the common - wealth. The royal household also included musicians whose various ensembles had to be reformed or newly formed. Many court musicians from the reign of Charles i were no longer living and had to be re - placed. A group of 24 Violins was reassembled and modelled on the French court, and the royal Wind Music for the Coronation of Charles II Band was also re-established. This was an impor - tant institution that played an essential role at the triumph procession of the court on 22 April 1661. The specific music that was played during the coro - nation ceremony and the triumphal procession on the day before has only been recorded in individual cases. One thing, however, we know with certainty: Matthew l ocke (1621/22-1677) composed a five- part Suite for His Majesty’s Sackbuts and Cornetts that was performed during the triumphal proces - sion. This grand procession through l ondon on the day prior to the coronation, a tradition extending back to Richard ii (1377), lasted several hours and attracted a large audience. Musicians, especially trumpeters and drummers, marched with it at sev - eral locations. n ot all of the members of the royal music ensemble were heard at the triumphal proces - sion, however; some could be heard at various places on the edge of the parade. l ocke was entrusted with the coordination of these tasks.
