This is an interesting arrangement. It includes a verse specific to Canada.

Our loved Dominion bless
With peace and happiness
From shore to shore;
And let our Empire be
United, loyal, free,
True to herself and Thee
God save the queen.


Followed by the splendid O Canada.

Lovely arrangement and beautiful choral singing in both God Save the Queen and O Canada.

It appears to me that the third verse of the National Anthem could vary. But in most cases, only the 1st verse (Sporting events) or sometimes 1st and 2nd verses are sung (Last night of the Proms or other official events).

Thank you Durham for sharing.

It is definitely very moving when I first heard it. It would not surprise me at all if Britten's 1962 arrangement is HM's favourite version.

God Save the Queen at 2020's Last Night of the Prom with Benjamin Britten's 1962 arrangement. Due to COVID-19 restriction, the reduced orchestra of 65 rather than 300 performed. The singers were in the stalls and gallery area of the Royal Albert Hall. There were no audience member.

Now that was a very poignant rendition of God Save The Queen. It gave me goosebumps!

God Save the King sung by Dame Clara Butt, who was an English Contralto (lowest vocal range in the female voice type, rarest amongst Soprano and Mezzo-soprano). It was recorded in 1930. She sung two verses solo, before repeating the first verse with a male choir/vocal ensemble.



Wikipedia page for Dame Clara Butt:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_Butt

Her husband is Kennerley Rumford, who was a baritone. Her three sisters were also singers.
