M. Oldfield's freedom of The City of London
Apr 27, 2024, 23:07
Is it true you composed music for Charles and Diana’s royal wedding?

It wasn’t the actual wedding. It was the day before -- outside St Paul’s Cathedral. I composed a little ditty that you can probably find somewhere on the internet. I’m not sure if they ever heard it. Although I did get the freedom of the city of London, which was rather nice, from the lord mayor.

What did that involve?

It means I can drive my sheep across London Bridge any time I want and if I’m ever sentenced to death, I can be hanged with a silken rope.
