As an alternative mass setting for my coronation, I'd have DiLasso's Missa Bel' Amfitrit. If there was music that was worthy of being called sacred, it's that.

I've just stumbled across this thread and thought it looked like fun, apologies for turning up late to the party.

For my pre-coronation banquet, I would wear this Elie Saab gown with the Norwegian Diamond Daisy Tiara.

For the coronation, I would wear another Elie Saab gown, but in a different colour.

The music would include Handel's Zadok the Priest, My Hear is Inditing, Purcell's Trumpet Tune, some of the music Handel composed for the coronation of George II and Mendelshon's (sp) Lift Thine Eyes.

If dreams were real...

Well, that dress is stunning, but why on earth does the woman wearing it look so cross and grumpy?

I would definitely wear Queen Maxima's blue dress. That dress is absolutely perfect for a coronation. I would wear the Swedish Sapphire tiara, the Braganza tiara, the Russian Kokoshnik tiara, or the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.

Another alternative mass setting I've thought of for my coronation is Byrd's Mass for Four Voices. That's a lovely setting. I'm not mad about Vaughan Williams's setting of Psalm 100, though, so I wouldn't have that at my coronation.
