Publisher's Synopsis

<p>The most iconic sound of the coronation will be the familiar song of our national anthem. First recorded as a prayer more than three thousand years ago and used at every coronation since 973AD, this prayer has become part of who we are as a nation.<br><br>As featured recently in the <i>Daily Telegraph</i>, <i>God Save the King</i> is leading the conversation, as we ask - how well do we know our National Anthem? Should every child learn it ahead of the momentous celebration?<br><br><i>God Save the King</i> uses the words of our national anthem (first and last verses) and takes us on a tour of the UK, celebrating so many aspects of our wonderful culture: our creativity and sportsmanship, our NHS and frontline services, our rich agricultural and maritime heritage, our forward-looking urban regeneration alongside our rural and seaside traditions and of course our unrivalled ability to queue!<br><br> Introduced by Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall, packed with fun historical facts and illustrated with fantastic detail and storytelling in each spread, <i>God Save the King</i> will be the perfect accompaniment to the nation's coronation celebrations and for those wanting to know more about our most famous song.</p>
