Decca to release royal wedding ceremony

Q1 breakthrough artist and Decca signing Sheku Kanneh-Mason is performing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19.

The official recording of the wedding service, to be held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, will be available to listen to on streaming platforms on the same day, followed by a physical release on May 25. 

Other performers include Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, The Choir of St George’s Chapel and Christian gospel group The Kingdom Choir. The album will be overseen by classical producer Anna Barry.

Rebecca Allen, president of Decca Records, said: “Decca is hugely proud of its historical connections to The Royal Family and is very much looking forward to recording, and making available within hours, this truly special event. This unique and prestigious occasion will be available to stream across all music platforms globally – a first for a royal wedding.”

Dickon Stainer, president & CEO, global classics & jazz, said: “This will go down in history as the first time a royal wedding can be re-lived within hours through the world’s streaming platforms; every word and every note of music.”

Decca will make a donation per album sold to support the charitable work of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
