While we wait (impatiently) for news about Kate Middleton's wedding dress, the latest update from the official royal wedding blog has provided news about the music for the service.

Two choirs, an orchestra and two fanfare teams (we are now wondering if we can get a MyDaily fanfare team) will perform the music at the wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey. They have been revealed as the Choir of Westminster Abbey, the Chapel Royal Choir, the London Chamber Orchestra, the Fanfare Team from the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the State Trumpeters of The Household Cavalry.

James O'Donnell - Organist and Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey will direct the choirs while Sub Organist Robert Quinney will play the organ. Christopher Warren-Green will conduct the orchestra.

Apparently Prince William and Kate Middleton have both taken an active interest in the music for 29 April which will be a mixture of well known hymns, choral pieces and specially commissioned work.

The Prince of Wales' official harpist Claire Jones will perform later in the day at a reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Let us know if you'll be humming along!
