BBC Last Night of the Proms

The self-proclaimed "world's greatest classical musical festival," the BBC Proms, has just concluded another season with their traditional and spectacular "Last Night of the Proms" from Royal Albert Hall.  Truly catnip for Anglophiles!  This is on a short list of events we want to attend in this life -- or at least any concert that includes Katherine Jenkins. 

  Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the Free,
     How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee? 
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set;
            God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet,
            God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet.
