Music Of Kings And Queens, The
Originally intended as the soundtrack for the Queen’s official 95th birthday parade, ‘The Music of Kings & Queens’ will be released on Decca Records. Composed by Debbie Wiseman OBE with words written by Simon Brookes Ward (Director of The Royal Windsor show) narrated by acclaimed actors Dame Helen Mirren and Damian Lewis OBE.
The new album tells the story of the making of the United Kingdom through twelve of its monarchs, beginning with William the Conqueror and ending with our current day Queen. Each monarch is introduced by a narration from Dame Helen and Damian, accompanied by a piece of music from Debbie that embodies each monarchs’ individual character.
Dame Helen Mirren says, “I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with Debbie on the musical journey into royal history. It was a privilege to record the words with Damian and to be part of celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday. Debbie has done a marvellous job composing and recording the music.”
Dame Helen Mirren has portrayed the current Queen Elizabeth to great acclaim on stage and screen, winning an Oscar for the 2006 film ‘The Queen’.
