my organ music choices….  

Bride’s Entrance:  Prelude to a te deum  by Marc-Antoine Charpentier

Recessional: Hornpipe from Water Music – Handel


I wanted the recessional to be the K #594 (Allegro Middle Movement) by Mozart, but I asked for it on too short of notice, plus I think it is slighly complicated.  


I youtubed everything I could find and listened to it over and over again.  I wanted something kinda “ta-da-ta-da” but not slow and sad.  I do NOT want to cry!

I’m trying to remember all of ours. I know we’re having Hollins’ Trumpet Minuet during the signing of the register. Our songs include Great is Thy Faithfulness and To Be A Pilgrim…

I’ll have to look the rest up…

We’re considering (haven’t selected any yet but I think all of these sound lovely on solo organ):

Holst’s Jupiter (tune was also used for “I Vow To Thee, My Country”)

Clarke’s Prince of Denmark March

Handel’s Le Rejouissance from Royal Fireworks Music

Handel’s Entrance of the Queen of Sheba

Beethoven’s Ode to Joy

Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

I’m walking in to Pachabel’s Canon in D. Its been my favorite for as long as I can remember and sounds AMAZING on organ.


If I remember correctly we are walking out to Hornpipe from Water Music.

We’re having an organ! The church we’re getting married in has an organ (and the organist comes with the rental fee for the church), but we haven’t figured out songs yet… I might also ask the handbell choir to play, I’ve been in two different handbell choirs but not this one (we’re getting married where my FI lives, not where I live)
