Royal Wedding Music Is Now Public

Posted at 9:40 AM on April 28, 2011 by Rex Levang (5 Comments)

It's been under wraps. But now the music for the royal wedding has been revealed. Handel, Parry, John Rutter, Peter Maxwell Davies.....see the full list here.

Having been a pastor for 30 years I have seen a lot of music at weddings. This is a great list! I would watch it just to listen to the music!

Hubert H. Parry seems the big winner here. Obviously his time has come again and well deserved.

The Choice of I was Glad for the prides precession is inspired. It is worth noting that this is a coronation anthem.

My only regret is that Handel is not represented.

Thanks to MPR, I recognize a lot of the pieces on that list!

Could you tell me how I might purchase the Sound Track from the Royal Wedding last Friday

The recording of the wedding is available now, as a download from iTunes.

Later this month, it will be showing up as a CD, or LP or cassette, according to this. Decca is a major record label, so it ought to be widely available; you should be able to buy it from your favorite online or bricks-and-mortar music store.
