Damian and Helen Mirren Join Forces for The Queen’s 95th Birthday – March 10, 2021

Album Project: “The Music of the King and the Queen”

by Sheldon Dane | London News Time | March 10, 2021

Helen Mirren joined forces with Damian Lewis to pay tribute to the Queen before her 95th birthday.

The 75-year-old actress, who won the Oscar on the big screen as a monarch in 2006, and her homeland star, 50, tell a series of stories about British kings and queens throughout history.

Each piece is set in music by contemporary composer Debbie Wiseman, who was asked to create a soundtrack to the Queen’s official birthday parade in June before it was put on hold due to ongoing coronavirus regulation.

The album, entitled “The Music of the King and the Queen,” tells the story of making England through 12 monarchs, beginning with William the Conqueror and ending with the current Queen.

Each royal family will feature the story of Helen and Lewis, accompanied by the music of the Grammy-nominated composer Wiseman, who embodies the individuality of the monarch.

The words were written by Simon Brooksward, an event producer and director who was involved in the planning of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebration.

Dame Helen  said: “I enjoyed the opportunity to work with Debbie on a musical journey into royal history.

“I am honored to be able to record the words with Damian and participate in celebrating Her Majesty’s 95th birthday.

“Debbie did a great job of composing and recording music.

“We may not remember most of the prime ministers, politicians, military forces, and even groundbreaking scientists, but in a good understanding of our kings and queens who shaped our country. Let’s say this is their story and their legacy. “

In addition to Damian and Hector Bateman, other actors possibly involved in the project are Allan Corduner, Sophia Pettit and Susannah Wise.  Bateman wrote,

I feel I have a duty to pay respect to those involved, to what happened and let others hear the story too. This was one of those. Truly blessed to be able to do it 💗 I also got to work with the most incredible team – MASSIVE talent with so much experience to learn from and tales to hear, I love listening to their advice. Their skill is so inspiring, seeing people like that in action is just wow! The crew was so motivating, sharing the story, making me want to do the best possible version of the character it’s a privilege to be. Thankful and blessed to be part of this. Thanks to the wonderful #DamianLewis @AllanCorduner @SophiaPettit #SusannahWise and all the others not in the pictures!”
