Best Ceremonial Music for Weddings

April 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

Weddings are among the most special events in our lives. The couple, together with their friends and family, would pour in much effort in making the wedding perfect. One of the critical aspects of the preparation is selecting which music for weddings to use during the event. In this article, you will find out some of the most popular wedding music.

The Bridal Entrance

The bridal entrance is very memorable to the bride. It is important that her choices of songs are played in this part. Some of the most popular bridal entrance pieces are Air on G String and Prelude from Lute Suite in D, which were both composed by Bach. Other popular choices include the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin by Wagner, Wedding March by Mendelssohn, Canon in D by Pachelbel, and Spanish Romance by Anon. All of these pieces may be played using a classical guitarist with options to use harp or string quartet for some.

Signing of the Register

The signing of the register is important as it binds the couple together in marriage that is legally recognized by the State and the Church. Some of the popular choices here are Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by J. S. Bach, Canon in D by Pachelbel, Ave Maria by Schubert, Panis Angelicus by Franck, Trumpet Tune by Purcell, Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Tarrega, Flower Duet from Lakme by Delibes, and Cavatina by Myers. These wedding pieces are usually played using a variety of musical instruments including the classical guitar, harp, string quartet, but Ave Maria may also be conducted by a vocalist.

Wedding Recessional

The exit of the newlyweds from the church, wedding hall, or chapel is usually accompanied with a much livelier music. Some of the popular wedding recessional music pieces are Hornpipe from Spring Allegro from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, Walter Music Suite No. 2 by Handel, Sound of Bells by Pernambuco, Trumpet Voluntary by Clarke, and Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel. The String Quartet is the popular choice for all of these songs except for Pernambuco which is usually played by a classical guitarist. The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba may also be played using a harp.

These are just some of the popular pieces used during the matrimonial ceremonies. Modern pieces are also becoming a popular choice these days. Even though these pieces are relatively new, they sound very well using traditional musical instruments like the harp, string quartet, classical guitar, and pipe organ.
