Presented  by historian David Starkey, this epic new BBC series reveals how British Kings and Queens shaped the story of the nation’s music as patrons and tastemakers, and even as composers and performers.

It uncovers the role of the crown in the careers of our greatest composers - from Purcell and Handel to Parry and Elgar; and features exclusive performances of the nation’s favourite music, in the historic locations where the monarchy first enjoyed it – from Westminster Abbey and King’s College Cambridge to Buckingham Palace. This is the music of ceremony, pageantry, and power, music composed for coronations and jubilees, thanksgiving, and political expediency.

“Making this series has been a delight, it has forced me to see historical problems in a quite unexpected light. It is a royal pageant in music, and thanks to the magic of television, one we can all now take part in.” David Starkey
