Walton's two coronation marches - Crown Imperial, written for the coronation of George VI in 1937, and Orb and Sceptre, written for the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953 - are both stirring marches with sweeping tunes, and famous examples of the genre. They are published here in new editions taken from the Walton Edition volume of shorter orchestral pieces, with a short preface from the editor, David Lloyd-Jones.
