Wedding Music

Messe de mariage – Dubois

A complete suite of wedding music for organ, providing music for the complete service.

Full Title Messe de mariage – Théodore Dubois (1837-1924)

Notes A short suite of organ pieces:

  • Entrée de cortège - an expansive, grand processional march, suitable for a large church (and a large organ)
  • Bénédiction Nuptiale - like the fluttering of angels' wings
  • Offertoire - solemn (
  • Invocation - very soft and gentle
  • Laus Deo (Sortie) - I can't understand why this isn't better known: it is loud and bangy to begin, then goes hell-for-leather with French toccata-like figuration. It is very enjoyable for listener and player alike.

Duration The Offertoire is about 6 minutes

Performers required

  • Organ alone
