A Choir Book for the Queen

A Collection of Contemporary Sacred Music in Celebration of the Diamond Jubilee
  • By Ian Ritchie, Carole Anne Butler, Tim Hone
Product Description
In celebration of Her Majesty The Queena (TM)s Diamond Jubilee, this unique collection showcases the very best of the sacred music composed in the last 10 years. Not for 500 years has such a compilation been made: in the late 15th century the Eton Choirbook was made to record the best of early Tudor church music.

Under the artistic direction of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Master of the Queena (TM)s Music, 45 anthems have been selected, 12 of which are new commissions for this project, including a setting of Rowan Williamsa (TM) poem, Advent Calendar, by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

During 2012, BBC Radio 3a (TM)s Choral Evensong will feature anthems from this collection and a specially bound copy will be presented to HM The Queen.

Featured composers include John Tavener, John Rutter, Judith Weir, Roxanna Panufnik, Judith Bingham, Richard Rodney Bennett, Peter Maxwell Davies and others.
