Washington, Nov 15 : Sir Paul McCartney has been an icon for music lovers around the globe, and now his talent has got the Royal nod-a dedication from Queen Elizabeth II's official composer.
None other than Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, who holds the post of Master of the Queen's Music in the U.K, has bestowed the prestigious honour on the Beatles legend.
Davies is responsible for writing music to commemorate important state events.
And now he has expressed his admiration for McCartney by dedicating his latest piece 'Liber Pulsationis Fabulatoris' to acknowledge the rocker's contribution to music.
The 20-minute choral work will be performed at Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral next month (Dec08).
"Paul is as great as Schubert and still has not received the full recognition that his talent deserves. This country has produced one of the greatest musical talents ever and we should appreciate and celebrate that loudly," Contactmusic quoted Davies as saying.
