Order of Service for the Queen’s Service of Thanksgiving

The Diamond Jubilee National Service of Thanksgiving starts at 10.30am at St Paul’s Cathedral. If you want to sing along with the hymns or see what British/German/French/Irish music is being showcased then click on the link below for the PDF of the order or service. Don’t expect a display of the great and the good of British composition. And no ‘I was glad.’

Order Of Service

Interesting they have opted for the Vaughan Williams’ Te Deum as the Introit rather than William Walton’s epic piece which was composed specificially for the Queen’s Coronation 60 years ago.

The only piece of contemporary music is an anthem specificially written for today’s service by contemporary composer and Jazz Pianist Will Todd.
