||Prince William and Miss Kate Middleton will be married in Westminster Abbey on April 29th, 2011.
Throughout the United Kingdom this will be a day of celebration with a national holiday declared to allow for street parties and the chance to watch the glittering ceremony.
This release celebrates much of the wonderful and truly memorable music that has featured at past royal weddings and also includes contemporary sounds that have grown popular in the past few decades.
Highlights include Lesley Garrett’s delicate reading of Lakmé’s The Flower Duet, William Walton’s stirring music for Henry V and Craig Armstrong’s tender Balcony Scene from Romeo & Juliet.
The album also features the stirring hymn I Vow To Thee My Country, Princess Diana’s personal choice for her wedding to Prince Charles and sadly also played at her funeral.
