Christopher Clift Chimes in on the Royal Wedding

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Sir, I have just watched the royal wedding on television, and I can only hope that those politicians, of whichever party, who were either at the ceremony or watched the televised coverage, appreciate the contribution of music to the entire occasion. Military bandsmen, fanfare trumpeters, choristers, orchestral musicians and organists, all worked to make the occasion such a splendid event. Imagine it without a single note of music.

There is no way that British pageantry could exist without the music which is so much a part of it.
