On a new disc to celebrate the 2012 Diamond Jubilee, The King's Singers present a selection of works from the past 500 years written in honor of the great monarchs of Britain. Starting with works for Henry VIII, the program covers the Elizabethan "Triumphs of Oriana" by composers such as Gibbons, Mundy and Dowland; a very Victorian selection of dedicatory works by Elgar, Parry and Parratt; choral arrangements from the opera Glorianna by Benjamin Britten; a new piece by Paul Drayton that comically pens "A Rough GUitde to the Royal Succession."
