He is best known for conducting the choir of St Paul's Cathedral at the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor) and Diana, Princess of Wales (Lady Diana Frances Spencer) at St Paul's Cathedral in London on Wednesday 29 July 1981. Born in Chingford, England, Barry Rose grew up accompanying the choir of his local church. After a spell as organist at St. Andrew's, Kingsbury, at the age of 25 he became the youngest cathedral organist in the country when he was appointed to the position of Master of Music at Guildford Cathedral.

He left St Paul's in 1984 after a difference of opinion with senior members of the clergy, and became Master of the Choirs at the King's School, Canterbury. From 1971 to 1986 he was Religious Music Adviser to the BBC, a job that included booking the choirs for the weekly Choral Evensong broadcasts.
