Description

Music for Royal Occasions is an exciting volume of pieces written for coronations and other royal celebrations over the past five centuries. It includes long-standing favourites, such as Handel's Zadok the priest and Parry's I was glad; and works from earlier years, such an Henry Purcell's I was glad and the delightful Rejoice in the Lord alway.

Many well-loved composers were commissioned to write motets for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and several are published here, including George Dyson's stirring Confortare, William Harris's Let my prayer and Herbert Howells's Behold O God our defender. In addition, two pieces performed at the wedding oF the present Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are included: Paul Mealor's beautiful Ubi caritas, and Hubert Parry's epic anthem, Bless pair of sirens.

Music for Royal Occasions provides a well-rounded concert programme in itself for choral societies or community choirs. The collection offers many useful and accessible pieces for church choirs, suitable for a wide variety of occasions.
