Presented by renowned historian David Starkey, this epic new BBC series reveals how British kings and queens shaped the story of the nationís 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 Ė from Purcell and Handel to Parry and Elgar; and features exclusive performances of the nationís favourite music, in the historic locations where the monarchy first enjoyed it - from Westminster Abbey and Kingís College Cambridge to Buckingham Palace.

This is the music of ceremony, pageantry, and power; music composed for Coronations and jubilees, thanksgiving and political expediency.

This two disc set includes the whole series plus bonus features not seen on television.
