Ottawa Wedding  String Quartet: Carol and Bohdan

This was a beautiful Catholic ceremony, with very traditional selections. In the process of planning the music selections, the bride was going to have a singer that unfortunately could not make it to the ceremony, but luckily we were able to work something out, and performed an instrumental version of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.

We often perform in Catholic weddings, and were again excited to be a part of Carol and Bohdan’s wedding day. For other couples planning a Catholic wedding, or looking for ideas for song selections, here is the listing of what this beautiful couple chose. As always we were happy to use our years of experience to make sure the music began and ended at the right points, and the songs were tailored to fit what the bride and groom wanted, with input from the Church as well.

1- fiancée (accompanied by his sister)  Clarke Trumpet Voluntary 
2- wedding party (flower girls, ring bearer, bridemaids) Charpentier 
Prelude from Te Deum 
3- bride (accompanied by bride's mother) Pachelbel in Canon D 

For the Signing 

1- Hallelujah  

For the Communion

1- Bach Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring 
2- Bach Wachet Auf (Sleepers Awake) 

For the Recessional 

1- Mouret Rondeau 
2- Purcell Trumpet Tune

A wonderfully harmonious chord was heard as the bride took the final steps up to the front of the aisle to greet her soon to be husband, as Duo d’Amore’s musicians finished playing Pachelbel’s Canon. The violinist and cellist picked up their instruments again to serenade the guests and during the signing of the register with Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons. Shortly after the officiant was proud t announce the bride and groom and introduce them for the first time as husband and wife. Amid clapping and cheering from guests we performed an equally exciting rendition of La Rejouissance from the Royal Fireworks by Handel.

Processional: Pachellbel Canon in D
Signing: Vivaldi Winter from the Four Seasons
