Music at Boldre - Your Wedding Music
Your Wedding Music
The wedding service itself is the most important part of your day - without this, you wouldn’t be married!
To help make the marriage ceremony an occasion for you and your invited guests to remember, we have the resources to help you with your music selection, as well as to make the music sound great on the day.
If possible, we would love you to have 'live' music at your wedding and, with the combined resources of our excellent organ, organist and choir, we will do our very best to accommodate your requirements. Experience has shown that CDs or other media do not always work well on the day and we would therefore ask you to consider carefully before using pre-recorded music.
Our Director of Music, Timothy Rice, has been playing church music, including at church weddings, for almost forty years. From Albinoni to Wagner, Arrival of the Queen of Sheba to Widor Toccata, the repertoire has been well-
Some couples already know or have some idea of which hymns and music they would like to have; others would like some help. Whichever category you come under, we have some suggestions below for you to choose from to help you on your way - and most of the music items are linked to an audio file so you can hear what each piece sounds like (don't feel you have to listen to the whole piece - just take a sample!); for the hymns, some have audio links and there is also a link to a PDF file at the top of the list of hymns so you can see the full texts.
When you have made your choices or if you would like to meet the organist to discuss your requirements, please send an email with your details.
