All proceeds from the single will go to Cruse Bereavement Support and Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity.
World-renowned classical composer Olga Thomas and number one classical soprano Joanna Forest are teaming up again to release a brand-new single called “His Noble Crown.” The song is set to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and will be released on Thursday, May 4th.
Olga Thomas, who has had a lifelong admiration and passion for the Royal Family, has composed the single and has spent a lot of time and creative musical craftsmanship on behalf of Cruse Bereavement Support. The charity recently announced that their online chat service, Crusechat, would have to close after a challenging financial year. As a result, all proceeds from the sale of “His Noble Crown” will be split equally between Cruse Bereavement Support and Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity.
Joanna Forest, an award-winning, record-breaking, best-selling, official double classical number one soprano, will perform the song. She and Olga have described themselves as a “dream team,” having released four singles together, three of which have gone straight to number one in the classical single charts.
The single has been arranged by Michael McDermott, who has worked with the Royal Marines Band and has vast experience writing for Royalty. His music can be heard at various Royal events, such as the Silver, Golden, and Platinum Jubilee, as well as at the Horse of the Year Show and Windsor Tattoo. Produced by Tom Hodge, MBE, who has also worked with the Royal Marines Band, the lyrics are by Adam Fergusson.
Olga Thomas said, “It has been my honour to compose a single to celebrate our new King’s coronation. My music is brought to life with the beauty of Joanna Forest’s stunning vocals. I had the honour of personally presenting my music to Her Majesty The Queen on a couple of special occasions, I hope this can continue with King Charles III. Long live the King.”
Joanna Forest commented, “It’s an absolute delight to be working with Olga once again, for such a special national occasion. I really hope the song brings joy and hope to everyone, especially our new King.”
