Platinum Jubilee Celebrations - My stay in London from 1st June to 8th June 2022
I was in London until Thursday paying homage to the uniquely long reign of ‘my’ miraculous Queen Elizabeth II. I watched live much of the spectacular and moving Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Queen is an inspiration to us all. Her faultless adaption to radical social change over these last 70 years has preserved the existence of the monarchy. In many ways she is a much needed moral beacon of poised consistency in these troubled times.
The Jubilee concert at the Royal Festival Hall was a true nostalgia-fest of Royal Wedding and Coronation music by Handel, Elgar, Purcell, Parry, Holst, Vaughan Williams, Walton, Mozart, Schubert and Vivaldi … the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bach Choir and Royal Choral Society were conducted by Christopher Warren-Green
