Coronation of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II CSACD 3050

Product Description

Fanfares and anthems commissioned by previous Monarchs, together with classic hymn settings and marches, all combine to recall the actual service, whereas the  musical forces deployed on that occasion included a choir of over 400 and a large orchestra, the Westminster Abbey Choir is joined here by the English Chamber Orchestra and London Brass. The performances are conducted by the Abbey's Organist and Master of the Choristers, Martin Neary, who himself sang as a treble at the Coronation, as one of the children of Her Majesty's Chapels Royal. 

Total time: 66:38

 

"Music played at the Queen’s Coronation `Gorgeous recording’"
Vroon - American Record Guide

 

"The 1953 Coronation was musically the best for some time. The English Chamber Orchestra very suitably accompany the Abbey Choir, the organ is heard in all its magnificence and the brass bring their own gifts of majesty and colour."
Gramophone, 11/01/2006
