Program Notes

This music was composed in 1952-53 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953. It has been an important piece for the band repertoire for a number of years, but has been out of print until now. This new arrangement is intended to continue the legacy and availability of a great piece for concert and wind bands.
