It is almost impossible to imagine a more breathtaking song for bride or bridesmaids than Meditation From Thais. This poignant masterpiece for solo violin and orchestra is compellingly powerful, leaving us in awe of the creative genius of Massanet.
After a brief harp and string introduction, the solo violin plays the motif over a sustained and muted string section. As with all great melodies and compositions, words fail to communicate the depth of emotion and beauty that we experience as we listen to Meditation From Thais.
Samuel Lawton is the featured violinist on our rendition of this beautiful wedding processional, prelude, or ceremony piece. At 5 minutes in length, Meditation is a perfect processional for bridesmaids. We offer an edited version of the piece for those who wish to leave out the final 40 seconds; some may prefer this version for wedding ceremony music.
