Wouldn’t it be great if the bridal processional music ended naturally when the bride has joined the rest of the bridal party? We offer the following choices for brides and bridesmaids:
Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring in 5 different timings – the shortest is :58 and the longest is 3:16.
Trumpet Voluntary (Prince of Denmark’s March) in 13 timings! Shortest is :59 and the longest is 4:16.
Bridal Chorus (the traditional) in both Solo Piano and Pipe Organ versions. The shortest is :24 and the longest is about 2 minutes. We decided not to offer versions longer than 2 minutes, as it is somewhat rare for both the bridesmaids and the bride to walk to the traditional bridal chorus. However, if we hear from enough of you to the contrary, we will be happy to include longer versions.
Canon in D by Pachelbel in lengths from 3:45 (Piano) to 4:03 (Orchestra). Soon we’ll have shorter versions of this popular wedding processional. It is very common for both bridesmaids and brides to walk to the Canon in D, but we want to make it possible for just the bride to walk to it, and the bridesmaids to something else, so we will provide for that option very soon.
Morning by Grieg in lengths from 1:07 to 1:50. Again, a longer version of this may be in order, after we see if there are any brides who wish to walk to this. It is not as majestic as some processionals, but it is a beautiful and well known piece that may be just what you’re looking for.
Meditation, another violin solo with orchestra, is 3:38.
Panis Angelicus is 3:56, violin solo, piano and orchestra.
The Prayer in a version that is about 4 minutes long. Typically not a bridal processional, you may choose this for your bridesmaids.
The Swan for violin and orchestra is 2:18, and we have a piano version that is 2:40. Again, not common for brides, but if we get feedback that you would like more options on the length of this beautiful classical piece, we will be happy to comply.
Clair De Lune is 4:23; the length of this will change slightly, as I plan to record another version it sometime in the next few weeks.
Some of the timings noted may be slightly shorter in practice than indicated, because at the end of each of the processionals we have left a few seconds of silence so the person operating the sound system has plenty of time to turn off the music track, to ensure there are no accidental beginnings of other songs!
