Royal Wedding Music from Maxima Zorreguieta and HRH The Prince of Orange

Hello Everyone,

Would anyone be able to tell me the name and composer for all of the songs played during their wedding ceremony? I loved their wedding and it continues to be my favorite royal wedding.

Thank you so much!

MoniqueLouise

Zadok The priest is a British coronation anthem, and I think it odd that other of royal house use it. for example Mary and Fred used Zadok the Priest for Mary procession down the aisle. it must be a nod to the supremacy of the British commonwealth.

I was shocked that Mary chose "Zadok The Priest", which as we all know is normally used for British coronations, but it was her wedding day after all!

I loved Anne and Mark's and Edward and Sophie's choice of Widor's Toccata. I think that piece of music is so lovely, and it worked particularly well for Edward and Sophie's wedding set at St. George's Chapel, which is quite gothic.
I was shocked as well with the choice of Zadok the Priest. It is obviously a majestic piece but for a future King and Queen of Denmark to use such a famous British and Anglican coronation anthem as the centrepiece of their wedding is very out of place.
Does anyone know if the Danish press picked up on this choice of music?

I don't know how it is in Denmark, but in Sweden Zadok the Priest is not that uncommon as a wedding march, and I doubt anyone here thinks of it as a British coronation anthem, just as one other piece of music suitable for weddings.

It was written specifically for the coronation of King George II of Britain. It is only known as a coronation anthem. It is a stirring piece I agree but the symbolism could not have been lost on the DRF, that their CP was using one of the most famous pieces of British Royal music ever written.

Maybe it's only known in Britain and its dependencies as a coronation anthem, but in other countries it's known to be used as a wedding march. And didn't the prince of Wales and lady Diana Spencer use the Prince of Denmark's March during their wedding? As well as Charles can be seen as a descendant of the Danish royal house, Frederik can be seen as a descendant of the British royal house.

I agree that Zadok the Priest was an unexpected choice, however I do think it was enthralling to see her walk the down the isle to that beautiful piece of music. The "God Save the Queen" part in particular. I don't see a problem with them using it, did it hurt the BRF's feelings in any way?

Hey,

Sometimes ago, I went in a wedding nearby my town, there a wedding band performed. When I reached there it was just OK for me but sometime I could feel their music and their words. For me that band was perfect with great presence and great performance. That band was A Few Good Man, and its performing in weddings in Dublin and well known. You can find out them through: http://www.afewgoodmenband.com

I think the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Madeleine had the most beautiful and moving entrance music.

For overall wedding liturgy music my favorites are-

1)William and Kate
2)Albert and Charlene-MINUS that awful South African "Click Song"!
3)Guillaume and Stephanie

I thought Madde and Chris' liturgy music was ruined by "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"...incredibly cheesy and bordering on inappropriate. Otherwise it was a lovely service.

My favorite royal bridal entrances:

1. Crown Princess Mary
2. Catherine
3. Queen Maxima
4. HGD Stephanie
5. Crown Princess Victoria
6. Princess Letizia
7. Crown Princess Mette-Marit

All of the music used above are beautiful and simply amazing! They are very fitting for a royal wedding in my opinion.

I loved HGD Stephanie's entrance, it was both beautiful and sad the way her handsome big brother led her down the aisle to their aged, frail father for his blessing. But I didn't care for the Processional music at all, so just based on music alone I couldn't put Stephanie on my "best" list.

But her entrance was by far the most moving, imo.

Princess Victoria, the Princess Royal, the daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, married Prince Friedrich of Prussia in 1858. Mendelssohn's Wedding March was the recessional used by Victoria Adelaide.

Crown Imperial was the recessional music when Prince William and Catherine walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey on their April 29, 2011 wedding day.
