Our British composers of the past 400 years have so much to offer that we couldn't include it all, but here's a selection of some of the top songs and orchestral music that make us proud.
The first piece ever broadcast on Classic FM on 7 September 1992, and the last piece in our A-Z, Handel’s anthem has been sung at every British coronation since 1727. It’s not just the jubilant choirs exclaiming “Long live the King!” that make it a royal favourite – the three trumpets and timpani certainly add a fair amount of excitement to the piece.
