This Is London....

As of late, the attention of the world's media has been drawn to the United Kingdom and the Royal Family. I don't have a British heritage in my ancestry, yet I have for a long time enjoyed studying British history, geography, arts, and culture. Part of that is some really thrilling music. KPL has a 3-CD set that serves as a good sampler of a wide variety of the best. As a collection of works by top composers that is conducted, played, and sung by some of the UK's finest musicians, these recordings are well worth the listening. One of my favorites on here is 'Crown Imperial' by Sir William Walton, which was the recessional at today's royal wedding.


Best of British [sound recording] : the nation's favourite classical music
David D.


For the past couple of months I've been listening to Vaughan Williams' Five Variants of Dives & Lazarus. A great piece.
In fact that UK is the place of the great musician born, so will never forget forever !
