Q: This composer Was Glad to discover his music was used at a royal celebration
ANSWER: Parry

classicfm.com/com…ad/
Hubert Parry: I Was Glad
From the moment it begins, it is throbbing with energy, and the first choral cloudburst of the words ‘I was glad’ still sends a tingle down the spine, even on the hundredth hearing.
Parry took a couple of coronations to get it exactly right, though. He originally wrote it to accompany the crowning of Edward VII, and then, nine years later, offered it up again, for the coronation of George V.
