Piano Wedding Music--UPDATE!
Church weddings seem anything but the norm, however, when I do play, it is often the piano, rather than the organ.
Since I've been asked more than once what piano music I play for weddings, I decided to compile a list of books here so that when I'm asked, I'll have a complete answer. Below are two lists, the first lists favorite books accumulated over the years. The second features various selections requested by wedding couples or family members.
1) Lorie Line Over the years, I have collected about every book she publishes. Below is a list of my favorite singles found in various books. Of all of them, the book I could not live without is Now and Then which features 100 Years, Clocks, You Raise Me Up, For Good and more. At her website, you can also find downloadable single sheets if you need just one piece.
- Ode to Joy
- Seventh Heaven
- You Raise Me Up
- For Good
- The Prayer
- Debussy's Arabesque
- JS Bach's Prelude in C
- Pachelbel Canon arr by Nancy Faber ( a fresh pop-jazz arrangement)
- Hornpipe by Handel arr Duro
- Rondo in D by Mouret
Some of Many Requests:
- Claire De Lune by Debussy (I created an abridged version--too long and too much work to get it up and running)
- You and Me by Lifehouse
- Angel sung by Casting Crowns
- Marry Me sung by Train
- Angel Eyes by Brickman
- Glasgow Love Theme by Armstrong (From "Love Actually")
- How Beautiful arr Mark Hayes
- You are Everything by West and Mizell
- Feather Theme from "Forest Gump"
- Many times brides ask for the traditional Here Comes the Bride Processional. Recently, I decided this needed to be updated so below is my own arrangement. Suddenly this is much more fun to play again
