    WELCOME to Her Majestys Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace for this service, and to a continuous tradition of worship that has been practised on this site for at least 800 years. This is one of the Queens Chapels, and as such, not a parish church.

    The original chapel was founded by the Knights Hospitaller long before Cardinal Wolsey began rebuilding it in 1528. The fine vaulted ceiling, dating from 1535, was the major addition by Henry VIII. Most of the chapel furnishings date from the late 17th and early 18th century and were designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The organ (although much altered and re-built) essentially dates back to 1711 and retains not only its fine case but much original pipework.

    The Chapel Royal was not originally a building but a body of priests and singers that traditionally accompanied the monarch wherever he or she went. Only later did the buildings this body used become known by that name. Today, as well as Hampton Court, there are Chapels Royal at The Tower of London, and St Jamess Palace, which is the headquarters of the Chapel Royal. Services in all of Her Majestys Chapels are based on those from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, and you will have been handed an Order of Service with this booklet. The Chapel Royal has an unrivalled continued tradition of choral music. Many of the greatest English composers have worked and composed pieces in and for this place, Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons, and Purcell among them. It is, therefore, wholly appropriate that worship is enhanced by music, which now may come from the English or European choral traditions. The texts are usually sung in their original language, usually English or Latin.

    This booklet contains the details of that music, as well as the hymns and lessons for each choral service. The hymns can found in the green New English Hymnal. In a tradition begun at the start of the Great War, we always end by singing the National Anthem, asking God to send his blessings upon the Queen.

    Anthony HoweChaplain and Deputy Priest in Ordinary

    Let us now praise famous men and our fathers that begat us. Such as did bear rule in their kingdoms, men renowned for their power,giving counsel by their understanding, and declaring prophesies.Leaders of the people by their counsel and their knowledge.Such as found out musical tunes and recited verses in writing.All these were honoured in their generations,And were the glory of their times.And some there be which have no memorial:Who are perished as though they had never been. Their bodies are buried in peacebut their name liveth for evermore.
