With the joyous occasion of the Royal Wedding coming up at the end of the month, many people are looking for ways they can help to celebrate.  One way to help set the mood is by listening to the great new CD Music For A Royal Wedding.  This CD contains 16 different selections, for a total running time of 67 minutes.

The music on the album includes a variety of selections which have a connection to royalty.  The liner notes give detailed information on each track and how it relates to the royal wedding.  Some examples:

The first track, Fanfare for a Festive Occasion, was played at the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh in 1947

Elger's Pomp and Circumstance March No. 4 was the music that Princess Diana and Prince Charles heard as they left St. Paul's Cathedral after their wedding ceremony

For the Love of a Princess was featured in the film Braveheart, and evokes the love story between William Wallace and Princess Isabelle of France

Other songs will be familiar to listeners because they've been used in numerous televisions shows (The Flower Duet) or are old favorites (The Bridal March from Lohengrin, Pachelbel's Canon in D Major and God Save the Queen).

If you are unlucky enough to have misplaced your invitation to the big event on April 29, you can still enjoy the atmosphere of being at a Royal Wedding by listening these uplifting and emotionally stirring songs!
