THE SCOOP | The Royal Conservatory Of Music Honours Queen Elizabeth II With Her Favourite Hymn
By Anya Wassenberg on September 19, 2022
As a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, the Royal Conservatory of Music has released a special recording of “The Lord is My Shepherd”, her favourite hymn. The traditional hymn is sung by soprano Jonelle Sills, a 2022-23 Rebanks Fellow at The Glenn Gould School, accompanied by pianist Geoffrey Conquer, a 2016-17 Rebanks Fellow and alumnus of The Taylor Academy. The performance was captured at the RCM’s Mazzoleni Hall.
The hymn was sung in November 1947 as then Princess Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten, and at the Queen’s funeral on September 19, 2022.
