Westminster Music Library holds its very own Royal Wedding party!

As we are still waiting for our official invites (we concluded that they must have got lost in the post), we decided to have a warm up with some early royal wedding celebrations in the Music Library.

Singing romantic songs for the royal wedding, in Westminster Music Library

A happy bunch of over 20 “guests” listened to words of wisdom from Shakespeare – “shall I compare thee to a summer’s day” – to Pam Ayers – “He never leaves the seat up” – on the virtues and pitfalls of love, romance and marriage. We sang along to some cunning adaptations of favourite wedding songs: “Katy, Katy, give me your answer do….” And pondered whether an expensive white frock would indeed look sweet or in fact be a bit of a nuisance on a bicycle made for two.

Our resident pianist entertained us with some romantic music – was that smoke getting in your eye or was it a tear? And finally we raised our glasses and wished the happy royal couple a long and lasting marriage, and left the final word and the best advice on marriage to Ogden Nash:

To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong admit it;
Whenever you’re right shut up.

[Ruth]
