This is the second of an ongoing blog post series!


Previously I discussed which parts of the ceremony include music.  But what music should be included in your ceremony selections?  It is okay if you aren’t versed in the great classical pieces because that is our responsibility, as a good string quartet should be.  Here are Belle Arte’s top ten classical pieces that we play in ceremony selections.

  1. “Canon in D” Johann Pachelbel
  2. “Trumpet Voluntary (Prince of Denmark March)” Jeremiah Clarke
  3. “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” J. S. Bach
  4. “Air from Suite in D (Air on the G String)” J. S. Bach
  5. “Claire de Lune” C. Debussy
  6. “Water Music (Hornpipe)” George Handel
  7. “Ave Maria” F. Schubert
  8. “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade)” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  9. “Wedding March” Felix Mendelssohn
  10. “Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride)” Richard Wagner

A few of our previous blog posts go into more detail about a specific piece, so click on the name to learn more about it and to hear a clip of music if it made it to the blog.


Our personal repertoire is by no means limited to this list. Please inquire about what music we can play for you!
