Jubilee James Bond Theme

5th June 2012

A new arrangement of the famous James Bond Theme was performed and recorded for HRH Queen Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee celebrations. Arranged by long-time 007 composer David Arnold and conducted by Nicholas Dodd, the London Philharmonic Orchestra performed the 50 year-old theme for the Thames flotilla.

The arrangement was played when the Royal barge passed real-life SIS headquarters in Vauxhall.

David Arnold has composed the score to five James Bond films, from "Tomorrow Never Dies" to "Quantum of Solace". For the upcoming adventure "Skyfall", Thomas Newman takes over the musical duties. Arnold has said that he will still be involved in Bond music projects this year, and this track is the first of those works.


Released as part of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant album, the track is also available individually as an MP3 download via Amazon:
