Music for Royal Occasions is an exciting volume of pieces written for coronations and other royal celebrations over the past five centuries. It includes long-standing favourites, such as Handel's Zadok the priest and Parry's I was glad ; and works from earlier years, such an Henry Purcell's I was glad and the delightful Rejoice in the Lord alway . Many well-loved composers were commissioned to write motets for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and several are published here, including George Dyson's stirring Confortare , William Harris's Let my prayer and Herbert Howells's Behold O God our defender . In addition, two pieces performed at the wedding oF the present Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are included: Paul Mealor's beautiful Ubi caritas , and Hubert Parry's epic anthem, Bless pair of sirens . Music for Royal Occasions provides a well-rounded concert programme in itself for choral societies or community choirs. The collection offers many useful and accessible pieces for church choirs, suitable for a wide variety of occasions. "an inventive selection of festive music" - Jeremy Summerly, Choir & Organ
