New CD for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

The London Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to be taking part in Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on 3 June 2012 on board the Symphony, as one of ten music herald barges of the flotilla. 

To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee we have recorded the programme of music specially for CD.  This Official CD of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant is now available exclusively from John Lewis and Waitrose stores and online.   From 6 June it will be generally available on the high street and online.

The selection of music by British and Commonwealth composers relates either to monarchy, royal events and ceremonial occasions or to familiar landmarks along the Thames. It includes works by Elgar, Holst, Walton, Coates, Gilbert and Sullivan, as well as the James Bond and Chariots of Fire themes.
