Topic: The Wedding Suite

    The Wedding Suite

    Some of you may know my mild obsession (is that an oxymoron?) with weddings -- the pagentry, the music, the dancing, the romance.

    Chalk it up to the fact that I have never had one, at least not the big fluffy ceremonial kind. I have a nice little collection of wedding dresses, and to go with them, here is my collection of wedding music, including one (Bowser's Waltz) with a melody by Randy B, submitted for a Garritan Challenge awhile ago...

    The fourth one is new... just a quickie arrangement of one of my favorite dance tunes, Hava Nagila. The following opens a page that has all the music in the suite. You can play them individually, or click the play all button to open a player that will run through them all.

    They are all downloadable for free also.

    And congrats again to moviemaestro!!

    Oh, and it has come to my attention that wedding dances have changed significantly over the years.... take a look at this couple's rendition of the famous "Evolution of Dance" sketch -- it gets fun about 1:30 into the video:

    Wedding parties are doing new things too:

    Very nice work on these, Karen. And ideal for that
    mixed Christian/Jewish nuptial day, of course... lol!
    Actually, the germ of a good idea, there -- services
    designed for mixed faiths... as many churches and
    synagogues peform such ceremonies these days.

    Bowser's Waltz I particularly enjoyed, with its simple,
    flowing swing.

    Dave --

    yes I like the idea of mixed faith weddings. Almost had one myself, a mixed Buddhist-Christian thing, along with a "trickster" character to make light of things at the reception.... would have been fun. Emily was going to play at it (EB Miller). With some guests of just about every mainstream tradition. Oh well.

    too bad no one can put up with me for too long ;-)

    Maybe I scare guys off when I say things like "I usually compose 8 or more hours a day, 7 days a week and I don't like to be interrupted. Could you live with that?" LOL! Oh and try not to chatter endlessly; just because I'm silent it doesn't mean I'm not busy! OK, I'm not that blunt, but it's what I think sometimes. [chuckle]

    Thanks for listening. After all this traditional stuff, I can feel the desire to write something more unusual just writhing inside, waiting to get out. It'll come....

    And for such a wedding, I'd include a bucket in the corner for conservatives who think the other factions are going straight to hell to throw up in...
