Does anybody know some of the songs they play at royal weddings? I'm helping a friend plan hers and I want to get some music for her to listen to. Thanks!

It depends on each royal family...

F&M's wedding:
-G.F.Händel, Zadok the Priest (traditionally used at British coronations)
-Toccata, Charles Widor.

Spanish Royals (Cristina and Letizia) had Händel's Hallelujah, from The Messiah.

British royals:
-Trumpet Tune and Air, Purcell.
-Prince of Denmark's march, also called Trumpet Voluntary,by Jeremiah Clarke.
-Pomp and Circumstance by Edward Elgar
-Let the Bright Seraphim, by Händel (my personal favourite)

I found Zodacs priest at M&F wedding a bit strange, esp. since the "Prince of Denmark" would have been such a fitting choice, maybe to obvious for them.

Yes, it was about the only moment in that whole wedding which I didn't laugh at. I mean, when was the last time one had Rhianna music at a royal wedding. I thought their recessional to "What Have You Done For Me Lately" was an inspired choice by Slitzerella.

It's always so interesting to see what these various couples select.

I was a child when Princess Margaret married in Westminster Abbey in 1960; it was the first time I recollect hearing the hymn "Immortal, Invisible", and I was captivated by its stirring melody and solemn words.

Now I understand and appreciate the allusions to Scripture and the impressive beauty and poetry of the hymn.

It always gives me a frisson to hear it.  Smiley
