for SATB and orchestra or brass Vaughan Williams provided music for
royal ceremonies several times during his long career; in the case
of this arrangement the occasion was the Coronation of Queen
Elizabeth II in 1953. It is a gloriously majestic setting of the
hymn 'All people that on earth do dwell' with spectacular brass
fanfares and opportunities for congregational singing. There are
also calmer moments: verse 4, for example, borrows from John
Dowland's setting of the psalm, harking back to the previous
Elizabethan age. The work was given its first concert performance
by the Halle Orchestra under Sir John Barbirolli in 1957, and a
year later was sung at the composeras own funeral at Westminster
