A SOLD-OUT concert to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee got a special visit from a Royal Family member.

His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex attended the concert in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Saturday, March 19.

Hosted by the Windsor and Eton Choral Society (WECS) and The Prince Philip Trust Fund, the event reflected on the life of The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Bradenburg Sinfonia Orchestra joined the society in bringing a programme of British music from some of the UK’s most illustrious composers.

The audience enjoyed performances by soloists Alice Coote, mezzo-soprano and Richard Bannon, baritone.

The concert began with Benjamin Britten’s arrangement of The National Anthem, followed by works by Edward Elgar, Hubert Parry and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Almost all musical pieces and songs were chosen due to their particular royal connections, many linked to Coronations, including Her Majesty the Queen’s Coronation in 1953.

The concert was conducted by Tim Johnson, musical director of WECS and precentor and director of music at Eton College.

Chris Aitken, chairman of Windsor and Eton Choral Society and secretary for the Prince Philip Trust Fund, said: “We are all thrilled that we have been able to come together to pay tribute and celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in this way.

“We were also able to reflect on the life of our founder of The Prince Philip Trust Fund, The Duke of Edinburgh.

“I do hope that, through this musical programme, that guests were able to reflect on their service and duty over seven decades to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth and especially their support for the local community here in Windsor.”
