Charles and Camilla select music

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles have chosen the choral music for their civil marriage and the church blessing thereafter. The St George's Chapel Choir, conducted by Timothy Byram-Wigfield, will be singing works by Walton, Bach, Handel, Elgar, Finzi and Grieg.

Three hymns, which are among the personal favourites of the Prince and Mrs Parker Bowles, will be sung. They are "Immortal Invisible," "Love Divine All Loves Excelling" and "Praise my Soul the King of Heaven." The choir, which was founded in 1348, is made up of 23 boy choristers and 12 Lay Clerks, who sing the alto, tenor and bass parts.
