Podcast: Music for Kings and Queens – the Choral Music of Hubert Parry

Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry had his first serious music training as a student at Eton College, that icon of British education. He went on to be Principal of the Royal College of Music, a Professor at Oxford, wrote music for Royal Coronations, and was knighted for his efforts. This podcast looks at some of his finest choral compositions – music fit for a king in performances by the Manchester Cathedral Choir.
