Ok so I got these two themes/songs in my head and I can't find what they're called. The first one is from Masterpiece Theatre you can hear it Here.

The second one I've heard on CSPAN in the beginning of the British House of Commons. But I can't find that anywhere on youtube or google.

The theme music played during the opening credits is the Rondeau from "Symphonies and Fanfares for the King's Supper" by French composer Jean-Joseph Mouret. The theme was performed by Collegium Musicum de Paris, Roland Douatt, conducting (recorded in 1954). One of the most highly recognized themes in television history, the music has served as the bridal processional for countless fans.
