The vocal and instrumental parts of the anthems used in the Coronation Service of George III and Queen Charlotte, Sept. 22, 1761 ('The King shall rejoice', 'Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem', 'The Lord God is a sun', 'My heart is inditing', and, covered up, 'Behold, O Lord'), presumably by W. Boyce. The table of contents in a few of the volumes shows that the original music for the service was cut down to about half the projected length. Parts marked with an asterisk also contain parts of three anthems by Handel ('Zadok the Priest', 'And the glory of the Lord', 'For unto us'), and nos. 26657, 26659 also three songs.
