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.

I can’t even listen to Canon in D without tearing up – can’t wait to walk down that aisle!!!

I can’t listen to them now at work – but I will later and give you my opinion! 🙂

@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 prefer the slower version myself!

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.
