Music of the week

19th October

Music of the Kings and Queens 

"I was glad"  is traditionally sung in a Christian church as an anthem if a British Monarch has a Coronation (when they are officially crowned King or Queen). It has been set to music by different composers. This one is by Hubert Parry (1902) for King Edward VII – it was also sung at the wedding for William and Kate. 


I was glad – Hubert Parry (this is footage of William and Kate’s wedding) (this one is Queen Elizabeth’s coronation – harder to hear as the commentator talks over it… need to watch from 22.40 mins for the anthem)
