Choosing Music For your Civil Ceremony

This weekend I spent a few hours choosing some music for our ceremony. In a civil ceremony you can more or less choose what you want for music as long as it is not religious in any way.

I am having a piper to pipe me into the ceremony, but wanted some nice classical music to play on a CD as guests were arriving and while we were signing the register.

I am not very knowledgeable about classical music so I spent a while listening to clips of classical music on Tesco Downloads and finally suggested the following pieces:

For Guests Arriving:
  • Serenade in D Minor (London in Phillharmonic Orchestra)
  • Meditation from Thais (Yo-Yo Ma & Kathryn Stott)
  • Air from Water Music (Berlinner Phillharmoniker & Riccardo Muti)
  • Canon in D (Acedemy of St Martin in the Fields and Sr Neville Marriner)

For signing the register:

  • Air on the G String (The National Phillharmonic Orchestra Baroque Ensemble)
