The Jubilate remains probably the best-known of the Prince Consort’s compositions. It is currently available on CD and was most recently performed during various of the 2012 Diamond Jubilee concerts for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. For those choirs that are still fortunate enough to sing the Jubilate in worship, this is melodious, simple, great fun to sing, unpretentious, and well worth trying. The organist has some particularly enjoyable moments during the soprano solo passages. Copy text: the unique copy, in my possession, of the Jubilate as privately printed and leather-bound for presentation to the late Sir Edward Heath on the occasion of the Royal Albert Hall centenary concert, 29 March 1971, at which the work was sung. It was presented by Sir Adrian Boult in the presence of the Queen (see photograph on Albert Hall website). This copy is, in turn, a facsimile of the text in The Collected Compositions of HRH The Prince Consort, ed. W.G.Cusins (1882?).
