If you haven’t heard (!!), this weekend marks the official celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. This afternoon, the celebration will get underway with a massive floating parade of boats (including several with the Royal Family) down the Thames River in London.
For music today, I am going back 10 years to the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. To celebrate her 50th anniversary on the throne, she hosted a concert in the back garden of Buckingham Palace. One of the performers was the London Adventist Chorale; their versions of two gospel classics were just fantastic.
Skip ahead to in the video to 18:40 for the first song, Great Getting-up Morning. The second piece, Jubilee (Great Day) follows immediately afterward at 22:30.
