In the absence of a definitive answer (how many drawing/reception rooms does Buckingham Palace have?) we may call it "the very elegant room with stunning crystal chandelier and ornate gilt and blue sofa and chairs. And carpet." :)

Good name! And I suggest, as a shorter form, "The Beautiful Drawing Room".

I've just found this announcement on the official site. The funny aspect is that an hour ago I was listening to a Mozart concert conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras and I was wondering who he was! :D


Buckingham Palace press releases

FIRST WINNER OF THE QUEEN'S MEDAL FOR MUSIC ANNOUNCED
16 July 2005



THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS ISSUED BY THE PRESS SECRETARY TO THE QUEEN

The Queen has approved the award of The Queen's Medal for Music to Sir Charles Mackerras, CH, AC, CBE.

Sir Charles is the first recipient of this new award, which is to be made annually to an individual (or group of musicians) who is judged to have had a major influence on the musical life of the nation.

Announcing the award at the Royal Albert Hall on 16 July 2005, the Master of The Queen's Music, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, made the following statement:

"Sir Charles Mackerras is one of the most highly respected and greatly loved musicians of our time. He was born in America and brought up in Australia, but he has worked in this country now for nearly sixty years, and has become a central figure in our musical life, bringing us discoveries and rare repertory in superb performances, with a continual spirit of adventure.

"Through the power and authority of his interpretations of Janacek, he introduced this country to the work of one of the greatest opera composers. He brought stylish performance practice to the music of the baroque and classical periods, especially Handel oratorio and Mozart opera. He has recently been enjoying acclaim around the world in a wide repertory from Brahms symphonies to Strauss operas; and this year he conducted Mozart's Magic Flute at both the Royal Opera and Glyndebourne.

"In this country, he has had long associations with English National Opera and Welsh National Opera, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Concert Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Philharmonia, and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

"Abroad, he has worked extensively with the Czech Philharmonic, recorded the Janacek operas with the Vienna Philharmonic, conducted the Orchestra of St Luke's in New York and the San Francisco Opera. He recently made his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic at the age of 78, and was immediately re-invited.

"Sir Charles turns 80 later this year, but he has the energy and commitment of someone half his age. Musical life in this country has benefited immeasurably from his presence among us, and will continue to do so. It is very fitting indeed that he should be the first recipient of The Queen's Medal for Music."

Background
1. The nominating process for the recipient of the medal is overseen by a Music Committee under the chairmanship of the Master of The Queen's Music.

The committee members are Michael Berkeley, Nicholas Kenyon, William Lyne, the Honourable Sir Humphrey Maud, Richard Morrison and Lord Moser.

2. The 75mm medal has been designed by Bethan Williams and will be cast in silver. All costs relating to the medal are to be funded by the Privy Purse.

3. The Queen will present the medal to Sir Charles, accompanied by the Master of The Queen's Music, during a private Audience on or around 22nd November 2005, St Cecilia's Day (St Cecilia being the patron saint of music), which is also the birthday of Benjamin Britten. In future years the announcement of the recipient will be made on St Cecilia's Day.

Welcome Ma'am

THOUSANDS royalists lined the streets of Bexleyheath hoping to catch a glimpse of Her Majesty the Queen on her first visit to the borough in 25 years.

The Queen's visit to the town centre on Tuesday also marked the council's 40th anniversary.

Her Majesty was met by five Bexley pupils on a visit to Bexleyheath Police Station in Arnsberg Way where she was presented with a special medal.

The Queen gets a warm welcome
By Local London Reporter


THE QUEEN was cheered by thousands of people as she went on a walkabout in Bexleyheath Broadway.

Accompanied by music from St Michael's Primary School, Welling's steel band and Beths Grammar School's Big Band, she chatted to many of the flag-waving crowds.
