Crown & Glory (2CD)

This brand-new double album features music of pomp, pageantry, ceremony and celebration, and is designed to set the mood for this May’s much-anticipated coronation of King Charles III and the Queen Consort, Camilla.

Crown and Glory houses 42 tracks – over two and a half hours - of British orchestral, instrumental, and choral music from across four centuries.

Music enjoyed at coronations, jubilees and state occasions sits alongside evergreens of the Great British classical songbook heard throughout the year at annual national events such as the "Last Night of the Proms." Melodies reflecting the close tie between the monarchy and the armed services also feature, as do select songs and tunes beloved by each country of the Union.
