Two Essential Collections of

Instrumental Music for Weddings

One in Love and Peace

Arranged by Bob Moore & Kelly Dobbs-Mickus

One in Love and Peace is a comprehensive and practical collection of the most frequently requested wedding instrumentals, including such classics as “Canon in D” by Pachelbel, “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner, and “Ode to Joy” by Beethoven.  Each of the twenty-three preludes, processionals and recessionals found in this compilation is arranged for both organ and piano. 

The instrumental edition—sold separately—includes reproducible parts for B♭ trumpet, C solo instrument, and string quartet. They are compatible with both the piano and organ arrangements and with each other. A complete recording is also available. Affordable enough to purchase multiple copies, these demonstration CDs can be offered either on loan or as a gift to couples for use in their selection process. 

Weddings and More:

Simple Ceremonial Music for Organ

Arranged by Kyle Johnson

Organists who are not only completely comfortable with the instrument are still called upon to play for a variety of ceremonial occasions, including weddings. Organist and organ teacher, Kyle Johnson, has provided pragmatic adaptations of some of the core pieces in the ceremonial repertoire. These were “field-tested” by organ students from Kyle’s own organ studio, and are tailored for organists who, in particular, have a still-developing pedal technique. In addition to wedding staples from Wagner, Mendelssohn, Pachelbel, and Clarke, some of the other favorites include are: Air on the G String/Bach; Ave Maria/Schubert; Panis Angelicus/Franck; Rondeau/Mouret; Air from “Water Music”/Handel.
