    From Henry V's own sacred compositions and the popular Agincourt Carol to the jubilee concerts and royal weddings of recent years, music has been used down the ages to advertise the power, prestige and taste of the monarch. Based on the BBC television series of the same name, Music and Monarchy explores British history through the relationship between political power and the musical soundtrack of fanfares, choral anthems and symphonic works which still form a potent expression of nationhood.
