By the way, looks like they're reusing the anthems from London 2012 by the London Symphony Orchestra instead of making new ones.

London Philharmonic Orchestra made those recordings, not the LSO :)

I think this is a (justified) cost saving move. There is no real point of re-recording the anthems every 2 years when they never actually change.

I agree. I dont have a problem with it. There is no need to keep re-recording anthems.
