Clarke - Prince of Denmark's March - Christ's Chapel, Dulwich

I performed Clarke's "Prince of Denmark's March" at the Wedding of Carrie Smith and Damian King at Christ's Chapel in Dulwich, South East London.

edgeI enjoy playing this kind of processional music and on this occasion it made for a triumphant start to the wedding ceremony. I was accompanied by Alexander Ffinch, an excellent organist. He was playing the chapel's 18th Century organ, originally built by George English in 1760 and restored by William Drake of Buckfastleigh in recent years. The organ is apparently one of the finest organs of this era in the country. It was tuned to a pythagorean temperament at approximately A=430Hz, which worked very well with the natural trumpet.

Many thanks to the couple for their permission to use their wedding photographs below:
