Last Night of the Proms

Soon after 2000 I connected with my father on the topic of The BBC Proms concerts hosted in the Royal Albert Hall in London. As it turns out we both followed broadcasts of The Proms, especially the Last Night, which includes such family favorites as Rule, Britannia! and Hubert Parry’s Jerusalem. We talked about one day going together.

Here’s a nice recording of this year’s production: Last Night of the 2014 BBC Proms.

Feel free to jump to the sing-alongs at the end (and sing out merrily as KDG would have).

[1:53:25] Rule, Britannia! (arr. Sargent)
[2:00:28] Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 in D major (‘Land of Hope and Glory’)
[2:07:44] Jerusalem (orch. Elgar)

Update (10/1/14): WQXR and BBC audio clips for this broadcast have expired.  You can find Proms recordings on services like Spotify.
