Day 5 of work by much loved English classical music composers

Today, is the final day of my choice of much loved work by English classical music composers.

My final choice is Sir William Walton‘s Crown Imperial march. There aren’t many versions on YouTube. This 1986 performance from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Charles Groves is the best. The work is stirring, rich, and expansive, An uplifting end to the week. Classic FM included the regal march in their evening of Great British Music.

If you’ve, perchance, missed the previous day’s choices, here they are.

It was hard not to choose a work from Holst, Tavener, Delius, or Purcell. Maybe, I’ll do a part II series one day.
