…Land of Hope and Glory with Annette Wardell at Alive @ Delapre:
Alfie can be seen sporting his Jean Valjean haircut for Les Miz Broadway in this video – do we like? I’d completely forgotten that they sang this twice as we weren’t enthusiastic enough – and I’d also forgotten Alfie’s comments about what to wave!!! This was my last concert that summer and the first time I took my son, 9 at the time. He had a lovely time right up until Alfie started singing although he couldn’t help himself from singing along to quite a lot of the songs!
Land of Hope and Glory is of course heard annually at the Last Night of the Proms and was also England’s national anthem for the Commonwealth Games until 2010 – for those who have no idea about these games, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales compete as separate nations, hence the need for a different national anthem. It was also included at the end of a number of Alfie’s 2015 summer concerts, either in those officially labelled as ‘Proms’ concerts or not.
