Wedding Classical Music Samples

Recommended piece, Ode to Joy (Beethoven)




Things to consider...


When selecting classical music and entertainment for your wedding there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, try not to make your selections too melancholic, it is supposed to be a celebration after all. Try and stay away from anything which is minor in tonality. For example, a movement from a symphony which is described as "Adagio in A minor" might not be a good choice. Look out for uplifting and happy titles and of course, major keys! Chorale in G Major or something similar is a good sounding title.
