On July 22nd, Prince George celebrates his third birthday. Olga Thomas has composed a gentle and peaceful lullaby especially for Prince George to celebrate his birthday. The composition features rising star of the classical world Emily Haig and it's one of the tracks on an album called 'Jubilation'. The album features compositions, which were written by Olga as special gifts for the Royal Family. All proceeds from the album will be split equally between Cruse Bereavement Care and Royal Navy and Royal Marine's Charity.
Olga Thomas is a world-renowned composer and supporter of Cruse Bereavement Care, a charity she holds very dear to her heart. She has spent many years donating her time, energy and creative musical craftsmanship on behalf of the charity. Cruse began a unique music programme, a tradition to give their patron, Her Majesty The Queen special gifts of music composed by Olga to commemorate the important events in the life of the Royal Household.
Over the years Olga has written many musical pieces for Cruse including Cruse's anthem 'Restoring Hope' and several of her pieces have been presented to Her Majesty The Queen. These include 'Themes of Life and Glory', a tribute to The Queen Mother, 'Celebration', an orchestral piece written to mark the marriage of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Olga also wrote the anthem 'Jubilation' for the Diamond Jubilee, performed by Her Majesty's Royal Marines Band Portsmouth (Royal Band). They have also recorded 'Royal Lullaby', a gift for Prince George as well as 'Lullaby for Princess Charlotte'.
