Published Apr 25, 2018The Royal Family are no strangers to vinyl, having pressed all manner of life stories and coronation proceedings to the format. Now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their own matrimonial day immortalized in microgrooves with the audio release of their forthcoming marriage.
Audio from the wedding ceremony will arrive on streaming services May 19 through Decca, hours after the two tie the knot officially. The audio will be the first of its kind on streaming services, with a vinyl release set for a currently unconfirmed release date.
The ceremony will feature performances from cellist Sheku Kanneh Mason, soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, the Choir of St George's Chapel and Christian gospel group the Kingdom Choir.
"Capturing the words and music of this Royal Wedding is a great responsibility, knowing how much a permanent record of the event will mean to so many people around the world," producer Anna Barry said in a press release. "Our Decca team will deliver a state of the art recording which captures every nuance of this very happy day and it will be a joy to be a part of the celebrations."
