Down 12. Walton is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
Walton wrote this piece for the coronation of Edward VIII, but in the end used it for the coronation of George VI. Said to have been modelled on the Pomp and Circumstance Marches of Elgar, it was performed again at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. At the time, much was made of the absence of Elgar's music at the 1953 coronation, with Crown Imperial being called the old wine to go alongside his new, Orb and Sceptre.
