This arrangement has been taken from the original score and retains its original key. The phrase “God Save the King” is much older than the song, appearing, for instance, several times in the King James Bible. A text based on the 1st Book of Kings Chapter 1: verses 38–40, “And all the people rejoic’d, and said: God save the King! Long live the King! May the King live for ever, Amen”, has been sung at every coronation since that of King Edgar in 973. This version was arranged by Edward Elgar and was first published in 1902. It is a very playable arrangement and can be used with the already published Choir, Orchestral and Wind Band arrangements. This scoring is based for any band at any level, but does require the solo horn to achieve a top C.
