Great session today! Our wedding music list of available downloads added these important choices:
- Entrance of the Queen of Sheba by Handel
- The Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride) for String Quartet
- Ode To Joy (Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee) from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony
- Air from Water Music by Handel
- Hornpipe from Water Music by Handel
- Wedding March from A Midsummer’s Night Dream by Mendelssohn (Recessional)
- Allegro from Spring (Vivaldi)
- Panis Angelicus (added solo violin to existing arrangement)
- Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring – solo violin added
Most of these new songs and updated arrangements are featured prominently on our Wedding Music Samples album released December 2010.
Next up: more wedding hymns will be recorded in December, including Irish & Celtic wedding music. Look for bagpipes music to be included, and we’re planning an entire album of bagpipes music soon.
Here is an informative and helpful article about wedding hymns, how they might be used in weddings, and some important considerations as you plan where and how to include them.
Today’s wedding music recording session was at ZooWest, using a Pro Tools HD2 Accel system, featuring Oktava microphones on the strings.
