Reviews

On Her Majesty’s Service follows Gary Barlow as he embarks on a mission to record a special song to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. He writes the melody with Lord Lloyd Webber, but wants performers from around the Commonwealth to play on it. Prince Charles gives Gary some suggestions before he begins an extraordinary trip, recording a vast number of musicians on their home turfs to make the unique record "Sing".

Musicians include a children’s choir in Kenya, Rastafarian drummers in Jamaica, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Australia, pan-pipers in a remote rain-forest village on the Solomon Islands and Gareth Malone's Military Wives Choir in the UK. Gary also manages to persuade Prince Harry to make his own musical contribution.

This DVD contains the full documentary as well as the music video for “Sing” and 35 minutes of unseen extra footage.

All jokes about knighthoods aside, Gary Barlow is that bit more likely to be in the running for one after recent events. Not only has he been the chief entertainment booker for the special concert being held to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee outside Buckingham Palace tomorrow evening, but he and Andrew Lloyd Webber have been in charge of putting together a special song to mark the occasion - 'Sing'. 'On Her Majesty's Service' is the story of that song.

It's a breath-taking, eye opening film, directed by Ben Winston, who was also behind JLS' excellent tour movie 'Eyes Wide Open' last year, which sees Gary travel all over the Commonwealth to create a truly unique piece of music that captures all nations and all walks of life, from a junk band in Nairobi to a blind classical guitarist up in the Blue Mountains of Sydney. And yet at the heart of everyone Gary meets, something remains the same throughout; the universal language of, and passion for, music.

It comes full circle when he returns to London, and Abbey Road Studios to give 'Sing' it's truly British stamp with Gareth Malone and the Military Wives' Choir, before presenting the finished song to her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor. Never have I felt more inspired watching this film - you can tell that Gary and Andrew had an amazing time putting this record together and to witness such an eclectic range of cultures all drawn together by music is truly awe inspiring, and you really feel that when you hear the song as well. In a year where we have many reasons to be proud to be British, this encapsulates it perfectly.

This fine programme, partly paid for by TV licence fee payers, is labelled by Amazon wrongly as PAL. Although PAL technically is an analogue TV system the important point here is that it's 50 Hertz - which is the field frequency of the UK TV system.
This DVD, apparently at Gary Barlow's insistence for some obscure reason, is at 60 Hertz. This means that DVD players that can cope (mine can't) and computers will not display it as well as they would had it been 50Hz.
To their merit Amazon did replace it, but with exactly the same version!

This is a wonderful DVD showing an ingenious way of producing a very special song for Her Magesty the Queen
on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of her Coronation. Gary Barlow travelled round some of the Commonwealth
countries to include music made by various people of the Commonwealth. The song is just simply called 'Sing'
and was performed for the Queen at the concert outside Buckinhgham Palace Monday June 4th 2012.

I had set up my PVR while I was out in London with the Jubilee festivities and watched it a few days later and my PVR had cut off the end, so I was glad to hear the release of the DVD. To actually comment on the product - I found this film really engaging, as I don't often think about the commonwealth all that much so it really brought it home to me, and further cemented just how special our Queen is around the world. It was a truly amazing idea to put so much world music into a song and made it something incredibly special which is why it was a joy to watch it's conception from simply cords, growing into words, vocals, bass and percussion, plus all the little instrumental touches that makes it sound so rich. I think the most amazing thing was watching Gary put it together on his laptop as he went, whether it was on the plains of Kenya, or in the front seat of the car, etc. You could hear the rough final version even before they arrive in Abbey Road Studios. The most magical moment for me was the part with the Aboriginal guitarist Gurrumul in the Blue Mountains of Austraila - he adds an amazing sound and its personally my favourite part on the track. It's an awe-inspiring track and the documentary made me appreciate the hard work, unity and dedication that went in to making it even more, and consequently like the track even more.

Loved watching this. So intrigued with how Gary Barlow managed to get snippets from the various participants -miles apart- and then place them producing such a wonderful song. Technology is such a wonderful thing, but only an extremely skilled musician could do it.I admire Gary Barlow's dedication and determination to produce a song suitable for the Queen. He succeeded along with Andrew Lloyd Webber.
I enjoyed the voyage he went on. Showing people and places never seen before. The expressions on the faces of the participants was a "Joy to Behold" What a joy to have "The Military Wives" and their excellent conductor Gary Malone included.
An all round excellent production.

Excellent value DVD. Had watched it on the television but really enjoyed the extra scenes that came with this DVD. Will treasure for a long time, it was worth it just for the video of the song.

As a massive Take That fan and a follower of Gary Barlow I watched this on TV and had to buy it. Gary has done some really great things outside of Take That and this is a credit to him. This is very enjoyable and interesting to watch and to see how Gary put the song 'SING' together was amazing. I love the single and recommend this to any Gary fan, he is so talented.
