This recording features thirteen anthems selected from the forty anthems in the Choirbook for The Queen which was published to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen in 2012. All eleven of the anthems especially commissioned for The Choirbook for The Queen are included on this CD. The original concept of this project emerged in 2004 from a suggestion made by Robert Ponsonby, to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen in 2012 with a "festival" of new anthems to be sung in beautiful places of worship by the best choirs throughout the UK.
An Advisory Group were formed to develop the concept and translate it into reality. Priory is delighted to have been asked to record this CD which was made in collaboration with the BBC.
