The World's Greatest Music
Take a look back at the amazing festival of classical music associated with the British Monarchy, used at the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on June 2 1953.
Another fantastically royal piece from William Walton, which received its premiere at the coronation. It calls to mind the 'Globus cruciger' (or, cross-bearing orb) held by monarchs through the ages, symbolising Christ's authority over the world.
