After much deliberation, I think I have settled on using Canon in D for my processional. But I still want something a little different than the standard version, and really like guitar versions especially. I found this version of it, which I really like but am worried it’s a little too fast. What do you girls think??
You can always ask your musicians to take the tempo down a few notches. Maybe give them a metronome marking (basically, a measure of how many beats per minute) for how fast you would like it played? Pachelbel’s Canon is pretty easy to slow down or speed up according to preference.
love cannon in D..sorry i cant be of help.. i WILL be walking down to it..however i will be walking down to the xmas version by trans siberian orchestra..i cry everytime i hear it.. our wedding is xmas themed and i will have my flower girl with wings ( as in the one video)…i cant wait!!!!
@MrsWBS: It always makes me tear up, too. I don’t know why. Maybe just because it’s so pretty and peaceful. But it’s my processional song, also, so I guess I will just have to wear waterproof mascara. I have a flute/guitar duo which will sound a lot like this version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7UH6m58eOU
I don’t think it’s too slow. My favorite part of the piece is the place where it is a little faster. I am having my son, a pianist record for us. I asked him to not record whole song; intro and then segue into the faster part. Ours is a private destination vow renewal and I won’t be having a very long processional.
