Anthems from King's - Music fit for a Queen
Stephen Cleobury conducts the choir of King's College, Cambridge in this
memorable recital of English Romantic choral music, exquisitely sung and superbly
recorded in stereo and 5.1 surround sound in the college's famous chapel.
Timed to coincide with the Jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II, this
new DVD presents a mouth-watering collection of favourite anthems. Appropriately,
it includes some of the music sung at the Coronation service itself in 1953.
It also features two sublime anthems by William Harris the man who taught Princess
Elizabeth the piano
