Reviews - What do customers think about ESSENTIAL WEDDING COLLECTION PRELUDES PROCESSIONALS & RECESSIONALS PIANO SOLO (Piano Solo Songbook)?
A Nice Book of Classics Oct 16, 2005
I purchased this book several years ago, and it remains a challenge and a good resource to this day. The pieces are advanced (although some are far easier than others)and need rehearsal, but none are impossible. Some are arrangements (although never poppy or jazzy), and others are printed exactly as the composer intended.
Here you will find works by Beethoven, Handel, and Mozart, as you would expect, but you also find Debussy, Edward Elgar, and Gustav Holst. The Essential Wedding Collection contains both the Wedding March by Mendelssohn and the Bridal Chorus by Richard Wagnar.
I've always been proud to include a piece from this book at my performances at churches, weddings, or memorial services. These pieces are dignified and beautiful, and very playable. If you're a high level pianist, you'll find this book to be very useful.
