Friday is Music Day (Just Enjoy The Wedding Edition)

Britannia rules on day of celebration - Scotsman.com News

Today's traditional wedding service is laid out in the programme intended to ring with "Britishness". The music, planned to the last peal of the bells, includes the work of two leading Scottish composers, and is laden with classical favourites from Britain's past.
The music of classical favourites by Elgar, Britten and Vaughan Williams will all sound around Westminster Abbey, as well as a hymn used in Diana's funeral. The musical line-up ranges from the popular hymn Jerusalem to the quintessential English melody Greensleeves.
The newlyweds will leave the abbey to the sounds of the well-known rousing orchestral march Crown Imperial by William Walton,

As the neighbours who are without a television gather round our box this morning I will cast aside any cynicism and revel in the Englishness of the occasion and the music.


Off topic but I found this earlier.
