It is always important to remember and reflect upon the hauntingly beautiful, glorious, magnificent and profoundly inspirational playing of Jeremiah Clarke's composition of 'The Prince of Denmark's March' (1699) when it was regularly broadcast by the BBC to German-occupied Denmark and to the British Empire in May 1940 during that dark and terrible period of the Second World War from 1939 to 1945. It gave encouragement and hope to millions of Danes and inspired them never to despair nor give in to the brutality and tyranny of the National Socialist German occupation.

I was listening to ELO someone made note of their reference, quote it always good to hear some classical and know about the preservation of the music you know who was that sound , like Handel Messiah being a revival of Bach and Beethoven then a little research reveals There were two famous reknown Mendelsons Eric & Felix one was into the architecture … this being Christmastime when it revives again …
Just saw they're bickering about fishing waters or deciding now what to do about the territory for lobster & fish around the channel.

@Alexander Hersh Denmark is now a snot stain on the world map. Britain is still great. But not as great as some think. I hope very much that Brexit will not end the 1000 year long relationship that have endured for better and for worse. You gave us hope for democracy not that long ago. Give us hope again....

Alexander Hersh

It is a great pity that Britain and Denmark endured many wars in the past but it is great that both nations are now reconciled to each other for the sake of peace and harmony in Europe. Both Britain and Denmark aspire to loftier and nobler pursuits for the common good. Hopefully, they will become more astute to greater dangers facing an increasingly insecure Continent.

My favorite classical song! Why can't music nowadays sound like this?

Maciej Jura

Because most composers and songwriters are bent on revolution nowadays. You may still find some good music from let's say italy but not much anywhere else.

John Simms

This was the signature tune that the BBC transmitted into occupied Denmark during the War.
