This is an excellent recording by the BBC Concert Orchestra of British Classical music standards included in the annual Last Night of the Proms concert. It should be noted that this recording was done separately from the actual event so there is no crowd or audience noise in the background which could be good or bad depending on your preference.

Some of the better known pieces are Pomp and Circumstance, Rule Britannia, Greensleeves, Land of Hope and Glory and the British National Anthem but my favorite track is Jerusalem, a choral hymn that I first heard a rendition of on the Chariots of Fire soundtrack back in 1981. It is no doubt one of the most stirring patriotic songs ever written.

Anyone that likes the proms will love this cd, it ahs all the music you would expect to hear from the last night of the proms, as far as I am aware there isn't anything missing. It makes for a great listen and means you can take the proms where ever you go and reminise about such a great occasion. Fast deliverery and packaged well, Great for anyone that really likes the proms music.

I brought this cd for my mother, who always enjoys hearing Proms concerts on radio and tv, and especially the last night. This collection is really great, in that it is not live, so you don’t get any annoying clapping or coughing in appropriate moments. The list of pieces on the cd is just what you would expect from a Last Night at the Proms – Elgar, Walton, Parry, Clarke, Henry Wood; rousing renditions of Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and more. A really pleasing cd, and a really great Last Night of the Proms Collection; my mother is enjoying this cd immensely. I would wholeheartedly recommend this as a great purchase for anyone looking to recreate, remember or just recall all the greats of the Proms Last night performances.

i am by no means a classical music fan (more like 60s)but there is certain music that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and this music does this and when you consider how long ago it was written is amazing,i guess its what being british is all about.

As a Yank and a lover of all things brit, I found this cd overwhelming. Play it at full blast and all the neighbors will join you in singing both the British version and American version of these wonderful, familiar, and sacred songs. What an experience!!!

I originally bought this as a download from iTunes,however due to their highly restrictive DRM, I have now bought it again to allow me to play from a USB in the car and on various Android devices. (Rant over...)

The stirring music on this CD really brings back the regular, once a year, TV event that is the "Last Night" and it includes all the favourites.

There's not a lot else to say as you already know all the music.
