Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia output to “Joyful, Joyful “both surprised and made headlines.
But now accused the musician Anders Neglin music theft of an American musician who has written the arrangement for the same song to the movie” Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit “.
– Sure it would have been reasonable to have with Warren’s name, I think enough, says Per-Erik Brolinson, retired associate professor of musicology.
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia chose to walk out of the church to the gospel song “Joyful, Joyful” at Saturday’s ceremony. Something that became a hot topic and got the guests to stand up and applaud while the couple literally danced out of the church. In the wedding program leaflet it says that it is the Swedish musician Anders Neglin who have made the arrangement for the song. Neglin is an established musician who, among other things, has written the theme song to the TV series “The Company”.

However, now claim the American musician Mervyn Warren that it is his arrangement was used, something that the P3 News first reported on. He made an arrangement for the song of the movie “Sister Act 2″ with Whoopi Goldberg in 1993. In the film performed song of Lauryn Hill.
“So my arrangement of” Joyful, Joyful “was performed in Swedish Prince’s wedding – but some idiot named Anders Neglin taking credit, he writes on Twitter.

Expressen have searched Anders Neglin for comment, but he refers to Stefan Forsberg, director of the Concert Hall which was responsible for wedding music for Carl Philip and Sofia’s wedding.
– This is a completely new arrangement of Anders that worked very well, we think. As far as I know, Warren not written any arrangement that includes violin, cello, two French horns and timpani – and that is what this event is written for, says Stefan Forsberg.
– If Warren finds out that there are these instruments, he will understand that it is very far from what he has arranged.
But Per- Erik Brolinson, retired associate professor of musicology at Stockholm University, disagrees.
He has listened to both Anders Neglin version and several versions where Mervyn Warren is responsible for the arrangement – and he believes that it is obvious that the Swedish version has copied Warren’s basic concept, but then changed in some details.
– Sure it would have been reasonable to have with Warren’s name, I think enough. Neglin version does not stand on its own feet without it is clearly influenced by Mervyn Warren, says Per-Erik Brolinson.
