'Long to Reign Over Us'
In celebration of HM Queen Elizabeth II becoming our longest-reigning monarch, the Parliament Choir presents a feast of Coronation Music, choral and orchestral, in this historic year.
Works for orchestra such as Vaughan Williams's arrangement of 'Greensleeves', thought to have been written by Henry VIII, Purcell's 'Trumpet Tune' and Walton's 'Crown Imperial' will be presented alongside choral classics 'Zadok the Priest' by Handel, performed at every coronation since that of George II in 1727, and 'I Was Glad' by Parry. The programme will include some lesser-known items by Herbert Howells and John Redford, as well as the première of a new setting of 'Te Deum Laudamus' for choir and orchestra by the Parliament Choir's Composer-in-Residence. This is a selection of music to entertain, surprise, involve and inspire in a truly majestic concert.
Tickets priced at £28, £23 and £15 are available from the Box Office at
the Cadogan Hall, 5, Sloane Terrace, London SW1X 9DQ. Tel.: 020 7730 4500
