Jerusalem is a bit inappropriate at present as this week it was announced that the area referred to by the composer when writing it is potentially to have 4 lanes driven through it as a rerouting of the A27

I totally support our own anthem.

I think it will be Jerusalem, it's always been popular at our St Georges Day concerts, as Astoness will confirm I'm sure.
