This book has been absolutely brilliant: well written and easy to read. Much like the TV series (which was itself one of the best shows I've seen for a while) this is an absolute must for anyone with an interest in either history or music, or both!

David Starkey and Katie Greening have collaborated to bring the English monarchy into harmony with history. The pace of the narrative reads quickly, the characterization of the various monarchs and composers are fleshed out to human proportion and the vocabulary is pitched to a wide range of readers so that both scholars and layman alike can enjoy the performances, be they concerts for worship, war, theatre, or ceremony.

England can be proud as a nation that most of our monarchs have been musically literate and treated music as an art form that commemorates their own achievements, music being the only art that transports nations across time zones. The most important message in the book is the very last page or so when the present plight of music is discussed, giving HRH the Prince of Wales the baton to pass on to future composers, to commission new work for the crown. Since Prince Charles is the only member of the royal family with any interest in serious music, the authors are hopeful that this next generation of young composers will not have to wait much longer to have new and innovative concerts commissioned by the court..
