English Country Dance Music for Your Wedding

Playford Promenade: Music for Weddings and Grand Occasions contains 42 tunes arranged by Dorothy van Joolen Barth for recorder and violin. These 17th century tunes have been especially selected and arranged because they make unique processionals and recessionals. They are a perfect choice for theme weddings, garden weddings, and for any bride and groom wanting something a little different! The tunes may also be played on flute and violin or on two violins.  We are available to perform this music for your wedding in Southern California. 

A recording of  Playford Promenade: Music for Weddings and Grand Occasions is available through CDBaby, Amazon, and iTunes, Google Play, and other digital outlets.  We hope this will be a welcome resource for those not able to book live music for their weddings. Brides and grooms can sample each track and purchase individual tracks to customize their ceremony. You can also purchase the entire album at an affordable price, thereby accessing a  wealth of unique ceremony choices.  The music on this CD can also serve as background music during a wedding prelude or as music for elegant teas or garden receptions. Though not intended for dancing (the tracks do not have enough repetitions for ECD dancers), we hope it will also be enjoyed by English Country Dance enthusiasts.
