The top 10, voted for by members of the public, included Abide With Me and Amazing Grace.

The Kingdom Choir, who sang at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, sang Abide With Me, while Katherine Jenkins performed Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind in St Davids Cathedral in Wales.

The song was the focus of newspaper headlines in 2016, when MPs debated on whether England should adopt its own national anthem. However, the proposals did not pass into law.

What a weird headline!

I particularly like the Emerson Lake and Palmer version!

That should read, World War One hym is England's favourite. Sure, the votes may have come from all of the UK, but with England having by far the largest population..... Doubt it's the favourite in Wales & definitely not in Scotland.


Attended church for 40yrs and have never sang Jerusalem. Night at the Proms maybe, but a hymn🤔

Can't the BBC squeeze anymore war related programs and reference in to persuade the electorate to remain in the EU

Getting everyone ready for war again

Another poke in the eye for the remainers at last night of the proms.

Aye, if you're English only!!

I know now that the BBC aren’t bias against Boris because all of their drivel makes his position stronger.


It really is a masterpiece.

Should definitely be our national anthem once the UK has broken up

Hymns are, by definition, songs for the delusional. I bet Brexiteers love them. Tell me to jog on (especially if you're suited and booted).
