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.
