The Proms represents the very best of classical music: favourite tunes and roof-raising choruses, brilliant virtuosity and the sheer joy of music-making, enjoyed live in concert by thousands, and by millions more the world over.
The Last Night has become a cultural icon, and this 2CD collection presents over two hours of the music that defines it, and much more.
English favourites including The Lark Ascending, Crown Imperial, The Enigma Variations (Nimrod), The Dam Busters and On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring.
Sing-along choruses: You’ll Never Walk Alone, Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem, and those staples of the Last Night: Rule, Britannia!, God Save the Queen and Auld Lang Syne.
