Can someone tell me what the song is that's playing right now? It's the second song in the set and I can't remember it! First it was Zadok, then it was this one, now it's land of hope and glory.

It's crystal.
It's I Vow to Thee My Country, which incorporates music from Holst's Planet Suite. I adore it and it always brings tears to my eyes.

It's from Holst's Jupiter from his Planets suite, also used as the tune for I Vow to Thee My Country.

That's it! Thank you.

Well despite, not playing Hey Jude, awful displays of fashion and horrendous singing voices. Tom Jones, Alfie Boe and Shirley Bassey made up for 'foul play'. Lovely evening but I am most looking forward to tomorrow.

For some silly reason I got all teary eyed when he spoke about his mother & father. Great speech by Charles.

I thought that was an amazing show! I was happy to see The Queen and PoW and Duchess of Cornwall come on stage at the end and thought the speech Charles gave was superb. The prolonged cheer for Prince Philip was touching, and loud enough that, who knows, maybe he DID hear it from his hospital room!

I think they are airing the service (or at least parts of it) but I'm not sure. BBC was just mentioning it. By the way Annie Lennox was terrible ...

I suspect Sir Paul is saving Hey Jude for the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Singing it live to a worldwide audience within 7 weeks of each other would dilute the effect a bit.

I also think that's why there's a lot fewer fireworks this time when compared with the Golden Jubilee. The Opening ceremony of the Games always incorporate loads of fireworks.
