As much as we enjoy performing outdoors for weddings in the summer, it is a real pleasure to perform indoors at church. The other pleasure of the day was helping to make Matthew and Karina’s wedding really special. During the prelude, we selected a number of mellow pieces of classical music, including Bach Air, which somehow has a light summer feel to it. For the attendants Duo d’Amore performed Pachelbel Canon, followed by a special arrangement of an interesting song requested by the bride and groom: Moments with Oliver, which they were thrilled to have performed by the violinist and cellist. The next piece that we performed was Meditation from the Opera Thaïs, by Massenet, and it provide a contrast with the brides processional. Rounding out the ceremony we performed Bach’s Jesu Joy.
