Our pupils record Elgar's Nimrod in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

In tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our pupils have recorded a special performance of 'Nimrod' by Sir Edward Elgar at The Menuhin Hall.

'Nimrod' is a work that many will recognise from its repeated patriotic performances, such as at royal events, in the opening ceremony of the London's Olympic Games in 2012 and at the Last Night of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, London. It was also played at the funeral of Prince Phillip in St George’s Chapel, Windsor, and every year it is performed at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, for the annual National Service of Remembrance.

The music is arranged by Bud Caputo and the orchestra is conducted by Matthew Taylor.
