Queen Victoria commanded “Make me a coronation crown of purple velvet and silver and gold…”
This poster hung in the window of the royal jeweler, Rundell Bridge & Co. bragging that they’d created the masterpiece crown “in obedience to the command of her most sacred majesty Queen Victoria.”
The Queen was amused.
We can see paintings of what the coronation looked like, but what did it sound like?
We know that, too!
And by the time they got to Hallelujah she must have been just as amused about the music!
Now you can listen to Victoria’s coronation for yourself–
