The Royal Wedding Music for William and Kate
Music is a big part of any wedding ceremony, and in the past we’ve given you some advice on choosing your wedding music. Whether William and Kate have followed our advice for the Royal Wedding is another matter…
The royal couple have selected hymns for their church ceremony at Westminster Abbey and have also comissioned original pieces to be played during the wedding.
It’s unlikely Kate will be walking down the aisle to Aerosmith, no matter how romantic I don’t wanna miss a thing is. Rather, something fittingly regal is sure to sound.
The Queen’s composer, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is in charge of writing music for the wedding and he has been quoted as saying that his composition will have “a Scottish feel”, paying homage to William and Kate’s background, having met while studying at St Andrews University.
These are the music musicians that will perform at the ceremony:
* The Choir of Westminster Abbey
* The Chapel Royal Choir
* The London Chamber Orchestra
* The Fanfare Team from the Central Band of the Royal Air Force
And not only will you be able to buy the official album, but you can also download a special royal wedding gift from George Michael, friend of Princess Diana, to William and Kate – an exclusive recording of Stevie Wonder’s You and I. Download it free from George Michael’s website.
The royal reception’s entertainment will come from the royal harpist, Claire Jones – nice choice, Kate and William, I had a harpist at my wedding reception too!
