What a way to honor the month of March but by recognizing The Wedding March in C Major by Felix Mendelssohn. Whether the tune is echoed by a harp, violin, organ, piano, or trumpet, the song itself in recognizable as one of the most popular tunes for the wedding recessional. When the first few bars of this piece are played, you can envision the bride and groom recessing down the aisle as husband and wife with their friends and family cheering them as the exit the church doors.
The Wedding March was written by Mendelssohn in 1842 for Shakespeare's play, A Midsummer Night's Dream." I can't say that I remember too much about this play but the marriage was between the Duke Theseus of Athens and the Amazon Queen, Hippolyta.
In 1847, the song was used at the wedding of Dorothy Carew and Tom Daniel at St. Peter's Church. But it was in 1858 that Queen Victoria's daughter, Victoria, chose the song for her royal wedding to Prince Frederick William of Prussia which made the piece popular for weddings to follow.
This piece is timeless and traditional.
