The conductor of the ROH orchestra was Robert Irving. Homage to the Queen was first performed on the night of the coronation, 2June 1953.

One of the towering musical figures of the 20th century, Sir Malcolm Arnold has a remarkable catalogue of major concert works to his credit, including nine symphonies, seven ballets, two operas, one musical, over twenty concertos, two string quartets, and music for brass band and wind band.
