Will you be watching the wedding?
As if it's not wild enough that I'm heading to Moundsville for the next two days, I've promised a friend to stay up tonight (tomorrow morning?) and watch the royal wedding in our cabin.* I hadn't quite been getting into the spirit of it all, but I'm now glad to know that there will be some good British music to enjoy along with all the pomp and circumstance.

Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Delius, Walton, Finzi, Maxwell Davies, Parry, Rutter... Check out the full list of wedding music selections here. Thanks to my colleague Beth Vorhees for sharing the link!
