Two contrasting pieces vie for attention this week both of which I love dearly.
My Track of the Week reflects the formality of a Royal Coronation as commissioned from William Walton for the Coronation of King George VI in 1937. It absolutely captures the grandeur and ceremony of such an important occasion and I think it's a masterpiece and it's played here by Black Dyke.
Our second choice this week is the complete opposite and has always given me great enjoyment, in the form of wonderfully organised musical chaos written and somehow controlled by American composer, Charles Ives.
Written in 1903, it can sound a complete mess unless performed perfectly, as it is here by the President's Own Band of the United States Marine Corp. Enjoy!
