Renowned historian David Starkey returns to our screens with the fascinating new BBC series Music & Monarchy, which reveals how British Kings and Queens shaped the story of the nation's music as patrons and tastemakers, and even as composers and performers.

Starkey shows how the lives of our greatest composers and musicians are inextricably linked to the destinies of so many of our monarchs - and demonstrates how much history can be read from some of the nation's best-loved tunes, including Rule Britannia, God Save the Queen, and Land of Hope and Glory.

Music & Monarchy uncovers the role of the crown in the careers of our greatest composers - from Purcell and Handel to Parry and Elgar; and features exclusive performances of the nation's favourite music, in the historic locations where the monarchy first enjoyed it - from Westminster Abbey and King's College Cambridge to Buckingham Palace. This is the music of ceremony, pageantry, and power, music composed for coronations and jubilees, Thanksgiving and political expediency.

This exceptional four part series hits TV this Summer on BBC Two as part of this year's celebrations for the sixtieth anniversary of the Queen's Coronation. David Starkey's Music & Monarchy comes to DVD on 19th August 2013 including never before seen bonus features courtesy of Acorn Media.

Experience the delights of great Music & Monarchy.
