Fascinating

The audio broadcast of QEII's coronation.
I found this fascinating! Imagine you are in your little home in England, listening to the radio coverage of the complicated coronation ceremony.
My advice is to watch the recent documentary on her coronation, then listen to this if you're interested.
Although the broadcaster's narrative is loud and clear, the choir's performances are not. Chalk it up to the microphones of the times. It is a fascinating study, though.

A great look back into history.

An excellent look back at the crowning of the UK's current queen, which I've only heard clips of until now.
