Land of Hope and Glory is the anthem of the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, and is sung by the whole audience on the last night.

Given the events of September 11th, 2001, the song, along with Rule, Britannia, were removed from the program where they were due to be performed on September 14th, and the lyrics to have been deemed too jingoistic by the national union of teachers, given the war on terror. The words are to be changed for the UK National Schools Proms on November 7th.

The new proposed lyrics are:

Music and our voices
Unite us all as one,
Let our sound be mighty,
Sung by everyone.
Deeper and still deeper
Shall our bounds be set
Bring our world together
Make us closer yet.
