in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

The coronation of an English monarch is one of the most splendid of state occasions, and has remained largely unchanged for the past thousand years. England's own composers have provided the sound of pomp and ceremony befitting these occasions. Grand music, filled with trumpet fanfares, drums, and voices will transport one back to Westminster Abbey and the Coronation of King George II.

Handel: Coronation Anthems (4): The King shall rejoice, HWV 260
Purcell: I was glad when they said unto me, Z 19
Tallis: Te Deum
Gibbons: Veni Creator Spiritus
