Doris Gazda and Larry Clark are adding to the repertoire and possibilities for weddings. This book is a collection of popular wedding pieces that include processions, recessions, preludes, and postludes that are not arranged progressively or in any particular order. The publisher has arranged this music for nearly any combination of instruments; this edition is for all bass clef instruments: trombone, euphonium, bassoon, cello and bass. Other editions are available for flute, B-flat instruments (trio of clarinets, trumpets, tenor saxophones), E-flat instruments, Horn in F, tuba, violin or oboe, and viola. They are all arranged in the same key for flexibility and can easily be performed by any group of instruments as trios, duos, or as a solo simply by adding piano accompaniment from an available piano accompaniment edition. Titles include: Air on the G String (J.S. Bach); Allegro Maestoso from "Water Music Suite"(Handel); Amazing Grace; Andante Cantabile from "Sonata Pathetique" (Beethoven); Ave Maria (Schubert); Bridal Chorus from "Lohengrin" (Wagner); Canon in D (Pachelbel); Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (J.S. Bach); Ode to Joy from Symphony No.9 (Beethoven); Panis Angelicus (Franck); Rondeau (Mouret); Trumpet Tune (Purcell); Trumpet Voluntary (Prince of Denmark) (Clarke); Wedding March from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Mendelssohn) and more. This is a good source to combine varying levels of musicians Because of their moderate range, G to a1, and moderate rhythmic complexity, these arrangements can be performed by varying levels of musicians.
