Zadok the Priest

This piece is associated with both sport and the Platinum Jubilee as it has been performed at every coronation since that of George II as well as for the UEFA Champions League. 

We have included a score as well to give to your pupils. The part when the voices start to sing is easy to follow along. Ask students to read it through as they listen.
