Fanfares will be played by The State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry and The Fanfare Trumpeters of the Royal Air Force. The choral forces, brilliantly led by Westminster Abbey's organist and master of the choristers Andrew Nethsingha, are extraordinary, and include the Choir of Westminster Abbey, the Choir of His Majesty’s Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, choristers from Truro Cathedral Choir and choristers from the Chapel Choir of Methodist College Belfast. Also appearing are the Monteverdi Choir, the Ascension Choir and the Byzantine Chant Ensemble.Music by Purcell and Gibbons, both organists at Westminster Abbey, and Latin rites from Tallis and his pupil Byrd – a Catholic who served under the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I – are reminders of where we’ve come from, with King Charles declaring ‘I am a faithful Protestant’ and, for the first time at a coronation, pledging to serve every faith and belief. His words are all captured here.
