Wedding Music

Epithalamium


Striving; yearning; short, upwardly arched repeated fragments, eventually take flight in a melody characterised by wide intervals. Soaring like a couple at a wedding.

Full Title Epithalamium by Alfred Hollins (1865 - 1942)

Notes Written in 1920, this is a beautifully crafted miniature. An Epithalamium is a song or poem celebrating a marriage. See also the Benediction Nuptiale, and the Bridal March, both by Hollins.
