Lord Lloyd-Webber, who is known for hit musicals including Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, described himself as 'incredibly honored' to have been asked to compose a new anthem. He said: 'My anthem includes words slightly adapted from Psalm 98. I have scored it for the Westminster Abbey choir and organ, the ceremonial brass and orchestra. I hope my anthem reflects this joyful occasion.' A Coronation March has been created by Patrick Doyle, while a piece by Iain Farrington for the solo organ takes in musical themes from countries across the Commonwealth. There will also be new works by Sarah Class, Nigel Hess, Paul Mealor, Tarik O'Regan, Roxanna Panufnik, Shirley J Thompson, Judith Weir, Roderick Williams, and Debbie Wiseman. Read the full story: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-11895405/Andrew-Lloyd-Webber-gives-heartbreaking-update-son-Nicks-cancer-battle.html?ito=msngallery
