If pomp and circumstance helps get you through your day that tends toward the tedious and mundane, if visions of Sun Kings frolicking through manicured gardens (though technically, this music was written to honor British monarchs) inspires creativity and subtly boosts your flagging self-esteem, and if imagining the King's (or Queen's) herd of deer strolling across the wooded glen of a Royal Estate brings a sense of serenity to what is often too much daily Sturm und Drang, then THIS is the soundtrack for your life!

Full of majestically-inclined classical pieces, performed with reverence and vigor by some of the world's foremost choirs and orchestras, this music is faithfully recorded and well-balanced between vocal and instrumental elements. Whether providing background music for your High Tea, or filling your home (or headphones) with the glories of monarchical splendor, this music should be just your cup of tea!

What a wonderful album this is. For Anglophiles and others, this is a wonderful compilation of ceremonial music and is a must anytime but especially during this Diamond Jubilee year. Thanks Amazon for making it available and at such a wonderful price. It's right up my alley!

All of the music on this recording have previously been released. I think it is overall a good as a commemoration of the current British Monarch's long reign.

CD # 2 alone is worth the price of the set. This is grand, glorious and uplifting. I play this often. The Handel pieces are extraordinary, especially Birthday Ode for Queen Ann. You may recognize the Funeral Music for Queen Mary...it was borrowed as the music for "A Clockwork Orange", the movie. I would buy this again. No regrets.

i purchased this on a whim because it was the deal of the day. It is great fun and sound wonderful. lots of tracks i've never heard. I am really enjoying seeing the progression of the music. i am learning more and more about classical so i can say if these are the best recordings of even best performers. I just am enjoying the music, the sound quality is very good, and the ordering of the tracks is very nice.
