I shall simply copy and paste the introduction from the diocesan website. Please take yourselves to Nottingham on the day, if you possibly can. You may acquire tickets at the bottom of the diocesan website page linked above.

“On Thursday 2nd June 2022, the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham are kickstarting the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend with a concert in her honour, at Nottingham Cathedral. At the invitation of Bishop Patrick McKinney, civic dignitaries including the Lord Lieutenant Sir John Peace, will be in attendance and it promises to be a joyful musical celebration marking the extraordinary life and service of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Speaking ahead of the event, the bishop shared his delight ‘that we can host this exciting concert at Nottingham Cathedral as a way of expressing our admiration for Queen Elizabeth in this her Platinum Jubilee Year.’

“Conducted by Gregory Treloar, Director of Music for the Diocese of Nottingham, the concert features a selection of royal themed pieces, including Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ and Mozart’s ‘Coronation Mass K.317.’ It will also include music by Charles Hubert Hastings Parry and a number of ‘Last Night of the Proms’ favourites.”
