Description
Showcasing a monarch's power, prestige, and taste, music has been the lifeblood of many a royal dynasty. Featuring 16 pages of color illustrations, this history by the author of Royal River and journalist Katie Greening—a companion to the BBC series—looks at how England's royalty and its finest composers have influenced each other. Encompassing such events as the Mass preceding King Henry V's triumph at Agincourt, the premiere of Handel's Messiah, and the 2012 rock concert in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, the book surveys the lives and accomplishments of such composers as Thomas Tallis, Henry Purcell, Edward Elgar, and Ralph Vaughn Williams.
