It’s a wonderful song.
Especially at the last night of the proms…Union flags, the cross of St George, St Andrew, and the Welsh dragon flying in unison.
Too many public school connotations for my liking.Jerusalem is a brilliant hymn/anthem.
Even as a Scot it gets the blood pumping.
I don’t think that the English should sing personally. It’s the National Anthem of the Great Britain. It’s belted out by team GB at the Olympic Games so why do the England football and rugby Union sing it? Wales and Scotland have separate anthems. Mind you I think that Northern Ireland also sing GSTK.For me it has to be GSTQ,GSTK however I’m genuinely struggling with,just doesn’t feel right when I sing it
