Notes and Editorial Reviews

Weddings are joyous occasions where Music and Poetry are at their most memorable. Famous music like Pachelbel's Canon or Schubert's Ave Maria have a unique ability to convey the wonderful emotions brought out by the occasion. Equally, verses from the Bible and Shakespeare such as "Shall I compare Thee to a Summer's Day" express our feelings with noble eloquence. Compiled on this album are exquisite performances of all of the most favourite Nuptial Words and Music. Whether you want to choose music and words for the great day or just enjoy the very best of romantic performances, this CD is for you.
