Discussion in 'Sponsor Announcements' started by Pennine Music Publishing, May 16, 2009.

  1. Wedding Music
    With more and more brass bands performing at weddings, having the correct music is essential for the couple’s perfect day. With most of the traditional wedding music coming from large overtures & operas etc, this unique pack of music has been specially designed to minimise fuss (all 4 pieces are printed on just one sheet per part) and have just the “famous” bits included. Specially arranged by Gavin Somerset so that the pieces included can be performed from anything ranging from a full brass band to a brass quintet group and with repeats that can be cut or performed to tailor to each event. The pieces are…

    BRIDAL CHORUS (from Lohengrin)
    By Richard Wagner

    “Here comes the bride”… is the standard march played for the bride's entrance at many formal weddings. The wedding between Elsa and Lohengrin however was almost an immidiate failure!

    PACHELBEL’S CANON
    By Johann Pachelbel

    Formally known as the Canon & Gigue in D and originally composed for a string quartet, the Canon part of the composition has become a favorite at weddings, either as an alternative to the Bridal Chorus (above) or used during the signing of the register. The convention in the Baroque era would have been to play a piece of this type in the moderate to fast tempo, however at weddings it has become fashionable to play the work at a slow tempo.

    WEDDING MARCH (from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”)
    By Felix Mendelsshon

    Popularized by Princess Victoria’s wedding to Prince Frederick William of Prussia and coupled with the Bridal Chorus for the entry of the bride, this Wedding March is often for the recessional at the end.

    PRELUDE to “Te Deum”
    By Charpentier

    Another item now popular in its use during weddings for its bright fanfares. Many composers have written music to the “Te Deum” text (Te Deum being an early Christian hymn of praise, used still regularly in the R.C Church). The prelude by Charpentier is by far one of the most famous.
