Misc. Comments

According to Grove Music, this was written for the Coronation of Edward VII, and later revised for use in the Coronation of George V. Grove doesn't give an instrumentation, though it often heard with organ and brass. The Hyperion recording notes says the introduction was completely rewritten for 1911.
