Now a Spanish choir will perform. A niece of queen Fabiola (I think) is said to also sing.

The Spanish song is called "La Salve Rociera", it is sung in El Rocío pilgrimage.

You know, even now I think with Fabiola being two years older than Baudouin, he should have been alive for this. He died so very early. It was just a crying shame.

The number from the Man of La Mancha was Baudouin's favorite.

Now a song from Don Quichote which queen Fabiola apparently liked very much.

Not really a surprise, it was announced this week he would perform. I think the Spanish choir was the surprise.

José van Dam with an excerpt of "The Man of La Mancha" (try to do the impossible to reach the possible).

What a wonderful Spanish tribute,the music has been a particular highlight of the Funeral Mass.

Is that Fabiola's niece María de las Mercedes de Mora y Narváez the current Marquees de Casa Riera?
