Update, Release of Wedding Music Samples Project

The Wedding Music Samples album has been released (January 2011). Songs added in the last few days to the site and the samples album:

  • All You Need Is Love (Beatles, originally)
  • I Do (Cherish You), from the Mark Willis recording
  • Happy Together ( originally by the Turtles) – This is a Perfect Recessional arrangement!
  • The Hallelujah Chorus – Handel, from the Messiah
  • When I’m 64 (from Abbey Road by the Beatles)
  • O Mio Caro Babbino – from a Puccini opera; familiar as an Andre Bocelli song to some
  • I Wanna Hold Your Hand – Great Recessional Version of this classic!
  • Ave Marie – another version of this classic song (there are versions by Bach, Gounod, Schubert, Caccini, Telemann, Bruckner, Verdi, Rossinin, Josquin des Prez, Mascagni, Rachmaninoff and many others)
  • Evening Prayer – (by Humperdinck)
  • Rondeau by Mouret -  a piano solo
  • Prelude in D♭ by Chopin

We’ve limited the number of wedding music samples we offer – if all versions of all songs we offer were represented, it would be too long to be practical for its intended use – a simple, streamlined way to listen to dozens of the best wedding music songs in one sitting, to aid in wedding music planning.

Lo How A Rose ‘Ere Blooming is the only wedding hymn that has been added recently – and probably will be used infrequently outside of winter weddings, but it is one of the most beautiful and staid Christmas songs.

Update: You can listen to these Wedding Music Samples on our site now, whereas before, they lived on the Bandcamp music site.
