Richard Hubbard’s Work to be Performed at The Coronation Prom at Royal Albert Hall

Music Development Director Richard Hubbard, who works for the Diocese and us here at the Cathedral, has composed an arrangement of the hymn Crown Him With Many Crowns, which will be performed at the Coronation Prom at Royal Albert Hall on Coronation Day, Saturday 6 May.


On Coronation Day (Saturday 6 May), the Royal Albert Hall will be filled with 5000 people for The Coronation Prom – a celebration of the King of Kings with the 120-piece All Souls Orchestra, and 320-voice choir. Richard’s arrangement is a sparkling tour-de-force, with scintillating woodwind, energetic strings and colourful percussion punctuated by brass fanfares befitting a royal occasion – plus, of course, the enormous Albert Hall organ.

Richard says: “It’s a great honour to have my arrangement played at the Royal Albert Hall on this once-in-a-generation occasion. My aim has been to make the orchestration highlight the words – to bring them to life in a new way that will inspire people to worship as they sing”.
