I am an unabashed royalist and purchased many items related to HM Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. It should be noted that in the history of Britain that only one other monarch, Queen Victoria, has been on the throne for 60 years for a Diamond Jubilee. The Diamond Jubilee was a rare event in history.
The CD contains 19 tracks, ranging from classical music reserved for the monarch on special events, to British songs with such a long history and popularity that they are timeless, as Greensleeves (credited to Henry VIII, used for the Christmas carol "What child is this..."). There are also samples throughout history including Gilbert and Sullivan, to the James Bond theme.
It is in this way a tour of centuries of British music both royal, classical, and popular.
Some may find this eclectic, but for me the CD is more than a musical collection but a tribute to a rare event in history. Therefore, I can tolerate a CD that contains Pomp and Circumstance and the Chariots of Fire movie theme.
I can play the CD and recall my visits to Britain as well as remember the hours spent watching the BCC's coverage of the Diamond Jubilee.
