Wedding Album [RCA 1998]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Wedding Album is an entertaining budget-line classical disc that contains such familiar pieces as Wagner's "Bridal Chorus," Pachelbel's "Canon," Widor's "Toccata," Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary," Debussy's "Reverie," and, of course, Mendelssohn's "Wedding March." A wide variety of artists are featured, from James Galway and Virgil Fox to the Canadian Brass and the Bavarian Radio Symphony. Serious classical fans will find this a little useless, but it's a tasteful collection that would work very well at official weddings and for casual fans.
