I want to thank everyone who has written to me in the past few days with messages of congratulations, thanks, and general good wishes – I do so very much appreciate it! Positive feedback like this is precisely why I love working on British History 101 so much. Thank you!
A while back, I posted a video from the Last Night of the Proms 2006, a performance of Jerusalem. I thought I’d post a YouTube video from the Last Night of the Proms this year specifically Land of Hope and Glory from Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March #1 (I’m not sure about other countries, but Americans are sure to recognize the tune from academic ceremonies). The lyrics to the chorus are posted below the video:
Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the Free
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet
God, who made thee mighy, make thee mightier yet
If anyone can find a video of Jerusalem being performed this year, I would greatly appreciate it!
