Main: Pomp & Pageant

With Sir Edward Elgar­’s Pomp & Cir­cum­stance March­es in mind, today we bring you a col­lec­tion of music often with regal and cer­e­mo­ni­al con­nec­tions, large­ly (though not entire­ly) with a British flavour.

We’ll take you on a cel­e­bra­tion of impres­sive and state­ly music from the likes of Elgar, Holst, Bliss, Par­ry (lis­ten out for the mar­vel­lous Blest Pair of Sirens), Boyce, Han­del, Arne and a lit­tle Rameau.

Well, it’s not all regal: you’ll hear, for exam­ple, Elgar­’s Nurs­ery Suite, con­duct­ed by the com­pos­er in an his­toric record­ing, along with one or two oth­er sur­pris­es.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States or Cana­da, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. To lis­ten from out­side North Amer­i­ca, click here to start your play­er .
