The Coronation of King George II

Since the coronation of William the Conqueror at Westminster Abbey in 1066, every monarch has been crowned in a majestic service full of pomp and glorious music. Searching through libraries of the Chapel Royal and the Westminster Abbey, Daniel Taylor, guided by leading musicologists, brings trumpet fanfares, drum marches and the music of Gibbons, Purcell, Tallis and Handel to reconstruct the magnificent evening honouring King George II that will capture the splendour of the occasion. “VIVAT REX”
