Anthems from King's
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
