Well its listed on BBC website for both the funeral and St Georges Chapel.  I doubt that we will hear much of the preservice organ music. However I am delighted my favourite 'quiet' piece  is being played at both Westminster and at St Georges Windsor.  It was also played  at last weeks service at St Giles Edinburgh.  This is Herbert Howells Psalm Prelude Set 1 no 2. Always close to my heart since I played it for Grade 8 in 1964.   I dont think I've ever thought of playing it before funeral though.   No 1 , its predecessor, is also being played at  St Georges.  There is a good selection made for both services including movement form Elgars Organ Sonata, and VW's  'Rhosymedre'
