The coronation of King Charles is tomorrow so today we’re playing regal and royal music of coronations and other imperial activities throughout the day. Including a suite of Handel’s “Water Music” that was written to entertain King George I as he took a trip down the River Thames in 1717. Pour a cuppa and listen all day, including at 2 pm for some of Handel’s Water Music for today’s Midday Masterpiece.
