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.
