Queen Elizabeth II - Diamond Jubilee GCCD 4077

Product Description

A journey through some of the most moving and majestic music taken from State occasions throughout the Queen's reign chosen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.  The Queen's new Jubilee message states "I hope we will all be reminded of the power of togetherness and the convening strength of family, friendship and good neighbourliness".

Total time: 77:10

..."The most enjoyable performances are the nine items featuring the London Brass and/or the English Chamber Orchestra.  A very stylist Trumpet Tune with soloist Andrew Crowley opens proceedings.  This is followed by an equally impressive Zadok the Priest .  The Gloria in Excelsis of Stanford is splendid stuff very much along the lines of Parry's I was Glad.  The disc comes to an inspiring finish with Gordon Jacob's Fanfare and arrangement of the National Anthem.  The performances are crisp, lightly sprung and full-toned, all captured in spectacular fashion by the engineers in the Abbey's reverberant acoustic.  Played at high volume it sounds terrific.  The decay time is around 5 seconds but the recording is in no way compromised by this.... A fine commemorative collection in spectacular sound.
