* = The above selections are gathered from excellent recordings. Each of the performances are keeping with the appropriate style. The tempo that I perform some of these are somewhat different than the above selections, especially the Mouret-Rondeau, the Stanley Trumpet Voluntary and Handel’s Water Music.** = The PRELUDE occurs 20-30 minutes prior to the wedding service, while your guests are being seated. Organ and / or piano are the most appropriate choices, but a soloist can provide an excellent variety. The PROCESSIONAL occurs as the wedding party and the bride enter the sanctuary. The music can and oftentimes is the same for both, sometimes there is a slight break, prior to the bride entering. The RECESSIONAL occurs at the very end of the service, and is generally the most lively of musical selections.
