I Just listened to the whole thing. What did they say was wrong with it! I think it’s fine?!

I posted this suggestion on the other thread, but Highland Cathedral is a lovely one.

Another good one is Tabhair Domh da Lamb (Sp?), in English “Give Me Your Hand.” It’s a traditional Irish wedding piece. Highland Cathedral might be the better processional, but both of them are lovely.

You should look up the Celtic Orchestra, they have tons of beautiful instrumentals.

You might have seen my comment about this on the other thread, but I also think you would be just fine if you still wanted to use the Loch Lomond melody, but speed it up a little and have a vocalist sing the refrain and verse 1 of “Red Is the Rose.” V.2 is a little mournful for a wedding, but the rest of the lyrics would be fine. It’s a little unusual to have a vocal piece for the processional, but it’s not like the earth is going to split in two and swallow you for doing it … if you really love the melody that much, I would do that.

FWIW, I’m using a piece of Celtic music for the processional that is pretty unknown, I’m positive nobody will recognize it, and the title is going to look a little odd in the program – but I love the piece that much that we’re doing it anyway. If that’s how you and your FI feel about LL/RItR, use it!

I just listened to the song and think it would be lovely for a processional. It might be a little less grand than some oprions but I think if you wanted a more serene ceremony it would be perfect. 

I heard a Celtic version of pacabels canon once that I loved if you want a play on more typical procssional  music.
