Wedding Ceremony Music

Since a wedding ceremony is a very personal event, we are committed to working with you as you select your music. Expert in guiding couples through this process, we are also very flexible and willing to discuss any special need or request in order to make your wedding ceremony memorable. Please see our FAQ page for further planning information.

The suggested list below is a sample of the most requested repertoire, containing Jewish, Christian and non-sacred wedding ceremony music. The functions at the far right are suggestions for placement of the music in a ceremony. During performance, the quartet is skilled in timing the music to finish at just the right moment, however long or short it need be.




If Music be the food of love, play on.

The following 47 examples of wedding ceremony music are included in our demo CD**. Some of these pieces of music are religious in nature while others, marked with an asterisk (*), are non-sacred and may be used for any type of wedding cermony. Numbers 37-47 are specifically used as Jewish wedding ceremony music. Highlighted titles are 295kb audio MP3 files.

In addition, we have numerous arrangements, for string quartet and singer, of the most common pieces of music used in the Catholic ceremony and Mass. A list may be found on our Repertoire page. Also included in our repertoire are many arrangements for trumpet and string quartet.
