Hymn for the Royal Air Force
On April 11th, the Royal Albert Hall was the setting for the premiere of a new work for which Grahame Davies has written the words.
Per Ardua Ad Astra, the Royal Air Force's first specially-commissioned hymn, has been commissioned by the Royal Air Force and set to music by composer Paul Mealor.
It was performed to a sellout audience at the Classic FM Live concert by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with the Royal Choral Society, the Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment and a contingent of the Royal Air Force Pipes and Drums.
It was broadcast on Classic FM on April 12.
