About This Work

"Jerusalem", arranged by Geoff Kingston, is from a selection of hymns and Christmas carols scored for concert band and suitable for Weddings and other celebrations.

Charles Parry set Blake's Preface to Milton to music for a rally of the "Fight for the Right" movement in Queen's Hall. It became more generally known as "Jerusalem" when Parry conducted it in 1918 at a concert to mark the final stage in the Votes for Women Campaign, after which it was adopted by the National Federation of Women's Institutes (and is still sung at meetings of WI Groups all over Britain). Edward Elgar added an orchestral score to Parry's rather sombre tune in time for the Leeds Festival of 1922, turning it into a popular national hymn which traditionally ends the last night of the annual Sir Henry Wood promenade concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. This work also made an appearance in the 1981 Academy Award winning movie Chariots of Fire.

This arrangement is in the original key of D Major. Please let us know if you would prefer the 'Band friendly' arrangement in Eb.
