The World's Greatest Music
It's an institution that goes back almost 500 years. Today, Judith Weir is Master of the Queen's Music but who were her illustrious predecessors?
William Cusins (1833-1893) was appointed Master of the Queen's Musick by Queen Victoria in 1870. He is the only Master to become a 'Sir' during his time in the role; he was knighted in 1892, the year before his death. His works included Royal Wedding Serenata, an overture to Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, marches and songs.
