Notes & Reviews:

In April, the United Kingdom celebrated the birthday of the longest serving monarch in British history. This release is the perfect soundtrack to the celebrations. Some of Britain's most popular artists and ensembles have gathered together for this two-disc set, which includes patriotic anthems and popular tunes. Musicians include Russell Watson, Jonathan and Charlotte, The Band of H.M. Royal Marines, The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge, and The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Notes & Reviews:

Sony's 2016 collection For Queen and County: Music for a Royal Celebration is a double-CD of songs, marches, and anthems long associated with British patriotism and royalty. The selections evoke the nation's love of monarchy and pageantry, so Rule, Britannia and God Save the Queen are de rigueur, as are Hubert Parry's Jerusalem, two of Edward Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance Marches, William Walton's Crown Imperial, and Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary (also known by its original title, the Prince of Denmark's March). Strewn among these obvious royal standards are songs of a soft and reverent character, such as the hymns Abide with Me and Amazing Grace, Danny Boy and Greensleeves, and various other pieces that are moving, rather than martial. The performers include Russell Watson, Carl Davis and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Jonathan Antoine, the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, Nicholas Cleobury and the Britten Sinfonia, Paul Daniel and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and many more. ~ Blair Sanderson
