Music from Chapel Royal
The Chapel Royal was originally a body of priests and singers that traditionally accompanied the English monarch wherever he or she went. Only later did the buildings used by these priests and musicians become known by that name. Today, as well as the main chapel at Hampton Court, there are chapels at the Tower of London, and St James’s Palace, which is now the headquarters of the Chapel Royal. Services in all of Her Majesty’s chapels are based on those from the Book of Common Prayer.
The Chapel Royal has an unrivaled continued tradition of choral music. Many of the greatest English composers have worked and composed pieces in and for the Chapel; William Byrd, Jeremiah Clarke, Orlando Gibbons, Henry Purcell, and Thomas Tallis, among them.
