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 are 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 includes some lesser-known items by Herbert Howells and John Redford, as well as the premiere of a new setting of Te Deum Laudamus for choir and orchestra by the Parliament Choir’s composer-in-residence.
