A very good product and excellent value for money. The CD contents are very well put together and thought out for the occasion of the Jubilee.

It was obviously special being royalty. I mean, having someone compose music not just to make you feel good, but also to tell everyone else how good, or mighty, or unique you were. That said this is great music.

Format: Audio CD
This budget collection offers great value in terms of playing time and the highest quality in terms of performance and sound, as one would expect from EMI. It’s clearly been marketed as part of the Jubilee celebrations but putting that to one side it can be warmly welcomed from a purely musical standpoint. Stephen Cleobury’s collection of Handel’s Coronation Anthems (Academy of Ancient Music and Choir of King’s College Cambridge) is one of the best currently available with great articulation and verve. The sparkling recording is slightly recessed but the actual choral tone is full and splendid. Zadok the Priest really zips along and the first entrance of the chorus produces a moment of true frisson. Cleobury also directs an outstanding performance of Eternal Source of Light Divine in which counter tenor Robin Blaze really shines. The sound is bright, clear and beautifully balanced. The third Handel work in the set is the Music for the Royal Fireworks with Sir Roger Norrington directing the London Classical Players. The playing is of the highest order and Norrington ensures that everything is tight and clear with plenty of detail emerging from the orchestra. So that’s one CD’s worth of top recommendations so far.
The 1977 recordings conducted by Sir Philip Ledger of Elgar’s Coronation Ode and I Was Glad by Parry are presented in spectacular sound with more than ample reverberation from its Abbey setting. This kind of sound doesn’t always work but the results achieved here are magnificent and it’s impossible not to get carried away in such a massive, thrilling aural experience. Both performances are inspired and moving,
Turning now to Purcell, Cleobury directs a moving account of the Funeral Music for Queen Mary.

HASH(0x96e6a4f8) out of 5 stars A Majestic Soundtrack for My Less-Than-Regal Life! 24 April 2012
By Movielovr777 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If pomp and circumstance helps get you through your day that tends toward the tedious and mundane, if visions of Sun Kings frolicking through manicured gardens (though technically, this music was written to honor British monarchs) inspires creativity and subtly boosts your flagging self-esteem, and if imagining the King's (or Queen's) herd of deer strolling across the wooded glen of a Royal Estate brings a sense of serenity to what is often too much daily Sturm und Drang, then THIS is the soundtrack for your life!

Full of majestically-inclined classical pieces, performed with reverence and vigor by some of the world's foremost choirs and orchestras, this music is faithfully recorded and well-balanced between vocal and instrumental elements. Whether providing background music for your High Tea, or filling your home (or headphones) with the glories of monarchical splendor, this music should be just your cup of tea!

By Sylvia Gothard - Published on Amazon.com

What a wonderful album this is. For Anglophiles and others, this is a wonderful compilation of ceremonial music and is a must anytime but especially during this Diamond Jubilee year. Thanks Amazon for making it available and at such a wonderful price. It's right up my alley!
HASH(0x9501a9f0) out of 5 stars Great music 24 Nov. 2012
By Finbarr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
CD # 2 alone is worth the price of the set. This is grand, glorious and uplifting. I play this often. The Handel pieces are extraordinary, especially Birthday Ode for Queen Ann. You may recognize the Funeral Music for Queen Mary...it was borrowed as the music for "A Clockwork Orange", the movie. I would buy this again. No regrets.
HASH(0x95025444) out of 5 stars Worthy Collection 2 Dec. 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All of the music on this recording have previously been released. I think it is overall a good as a commemoration of the current British Monarch's long reign.

By Bjorn - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
i purchased this on a whim because it was the deal of the day. It is great fun and sound wonderful. lots of tracks i've never heard. I am really enjoying seeing the progression of the music. i am learning more and more about classical so i can say if these are the best recordings of even best performers. I just am enjoying the music, the sound quality is very good, and the ordering of the tracks is very nice.
