As I’m working on the hymns portion of the wedding music project, it occurs to me that an explanation might be in order; I think some of this information will be repeated somewhere else on the site, possibly in the description of the hymns that we offer if they comprise their own album (which is the plan at the moment).
A couple of the hymns are quite upbeat, and though you may desire to have hymns during your wedding – for example during the prelude – you may not want anything as strong as a couple of them that I’ve arranged. As such, my tentative solution is to put the liveliest hymns at the beginning of the album(s) that include hymns. That way, if they are used together, but you would rather not have those that are the most forceful musically, it will be easy for the sound person to simply start with the 3rd or 4th hymn.
On the other hand, if you decide to use them as the music that immediately follows your primary recessional, it may be that the most upbeat ones will be perfect for your wedding. We are trying to ensure that you make the call – it’s the same thinking behind offering our processionals in shorter and longer versions, so you can choose the perfect timing for your special day. As always, we welcome your comments.
