Wedding Music

A quirky lopsided wedding march - tongue firmly in cheek.

Full Title Serenade by Derek Bourgeois (b.1941)

Notes Derek Bourgeois wrote this Serenade for his own wedding, to be played by the organist as the guests left the ceremony. Not wishing to allow them the luxury of proceeding in an orderly 2/4, the composer wrote the work in 11/8, and in case anyone felt too comfortable, he changed it to 13/8 in the middle! The work has now been released in a number of different orchestaions of the original version for organ. This delightful minature has entered the repertoire throughout the world.

Duration 2 minutes 45 seconds
