Rockcliffe Park is a great location for a wedding ceremony in Ottawa, and our string ensemble loves to perform here. Brenda and Brian’s wedding was elegant and refined and not overdone or fussy—the decorations were sparse, but everything had it’s place and was there for a reason. The music for the ceremony was on the one hand, classical and sophisticated, while at the same time is was also somewhat intimate, as well as being full and rich. The processional began with Handel’s Air from the water music—quite a stately beginning to the wedding, which flowed right into Bach’s Jesu Joy from the water music. These two songs work very well together, as the contrast between them makes them even more interesting. The signing music was another piece by Bach, and to complete the ceremony our string players performed the loud and energetic Trumpet Voluntary.

Processional:

1. Handel - Air from Water Music

2. Bach - Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring

Signing:

Bach - Wachet Auf

Recessional:

Clarke - Trumpet Voluntary
