Composed for the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey on Tuesday, 2 June 1953.
Was going to say "Not to be confused with" - but actually, closely related to! - The Hundredth Psalm - for this work uses material in that earlier setting: (Palmer, again): "In Vaughan Williams' Coronation Setting  the fanfares for 'all available trumpets' which ring out to introduce the first and last verses were, however, adapted from [the] earlier short cantata composed... for the 1930 Leith Hill Festival."
