Various The Royal Wedding - The Official Album CD

 

 

 

Decca Records is proud to release The Official Recording of The Royal Wedding, recorded live at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. THE OFFICIAL ALBUM includes every piece of music performed at the ceremony, the readings, blessings and the vows.
 
The musical highlight of the moving and joyous ceremony was British cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, one of the most exciting musicians of his generation, who was personally asked by the bride and groom to perform at their wedding. The 19-year-old musician took centre stage for the all-important signing of the register. Sheku played three beautiful pieces: Sicilienne by von Paradis, Schubert’s Ave Maria, and Après Un Rêve by Fauré as the Royal Couple officially became husband and wife.   
Enhancing the emotion of the occasion, the personal musical choices of Prince Harry and his new wife – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – include Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine, John Rutter’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You and the hymn Lord Of All Hopefulness, as well as two popular tracks performed by The Kingdom Choir conducted by Karen Gibson: Ben E. King’s hit song Stand By Me and the gospel tune This Little Light Of Mine. The orchestra was fronted by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and accompanied by trumpet player David Blackadder, organist Luke Bond and State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry.
