The famous Rule Britannia in a new arrangement by Nigel Wicken. Each verse features different sections of the orchestra. The final part has the benefit of some interesting harmonies, more "Wicken" than "Arne". Although no voice part is scored, it is quite possible for the audience to join in at the traditional moments! The Violin 3 part is a treble clef version of the Viola part except for a few out-of-range notes.
