St Georges Day

This is one that gives limited scope but as it is this Sunday I thought to give it a go.
My version of Land of Hope and Glory.

That's two very good performances of two very well know tunes.
Ken .. liked the 'kettle drum' at the end.
Brian .. it's always good to hear a piano being played.

A difficult category to add to. Maybe include anything with the words dragon, England .. or red?

I googled St Georges day and found this piece listed. Can you explain what connection it has. Beats me. "A Whiter Shade of Pale"

regards Ken

Hi Ken, I can't see the connection with St George but nevertheless, a very nice version of Whiter Shade of Pale. :D :D

I can't think of a tune with St George in the title but I found one called "King William's March", sounds English enough to me. :)
It is by jeremiah Clarke. It says on the music that it is a short piece for keyboard taken from a manuscript dated 1704-07, in the British Library.
I thought harpsichord appropriate.
Afraid it only recorded on one channel , really must buy new leads. I converted it to mono.
