Sample Playlists

As a starting point, these lists should suggest ways of choosing music that will work for the individual parts of the ceremony and work together as a musical set.

Traditional (Organ)

The core of wedding repertoire - all in one playlist. People connect with music that they recognize, and your guests will be familiar with what they hear.

Prelude Sample Bach: Air from Suite in D
Seating of Family Bach: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Bridesmaid's Processional Pachelbel: Canon in D
Bridal Processional Wagner: Bridal March
Ceremony Music Bach/Gounod: Ave Maria
Recessional Mendelssohn: Wedding March

Traditional II (Organ)

An alternative set of pieces - still all music that is performed almost solely as wedding music.

Prelude Sample Bach: Toccata in F
Seating of Family Mozart: Alleluia
Bridesmaid's Processional Marcello: Psalm XIX
Bridal Processional Clark: Trumpet Voluntary
Ceremony Music Where Love is Found
Recessional Handel: La Rejouissance

Classical (Organ)

These pieces embrace the spirit of each part without being strongly associated as wedding repertoire.

Prelude Sample Baroque Suite
Seating of Family Bach: Toccata in F
Bridesmaid's Processional Marcello: Psalm XIX
Bridal Processional German: Trumpet Tune
Ceremony Music Be Thou My Vision
Recessional Mathias: Fanfare

Romantic (Piano)

Prelude Sample Debussy: Arabesque
Seating of Family Chopin: Nocturne in E
Bridesmaid's Processional Bach: Prelude in C
Bridal Processional Andres: Bouree
Ceremony Music Satie: Gymnopedie
Recessional Vivaldi: "Spring" from The Four Seasons

Lighter Side (Piano)

A set of pieces that evoke a little classical, a little pop.

Prelude Sample Jim Brickman: Meant to Be
Seating of Family Andrea Bocelli: The Prayer
Bridesmaid's Processional Enya: China Roses
Bridal Processional Kenny G: The Wedding Song
Recessional Beethoven: Ode to Joyd
