Songs Used for Wedding Readings
The wedding in its most important and emotional time is related to the religious ceremony. But here even the priest will not pass so quickly directly to the main question “do you…’’.
Planned to be officiated a religious service as well, with some readings and passages from Bible included as a preach about what marriages means, how important this time is and it is now and then forever it all gains a much more sentimental touch, a much more vibrant touch for the soul.
To add, like the icing on the cake, background music will mean to boost more the effect of these moments. In some cases a chorus is hired while others prefer to have their songs liked included and no money paid. But as how during the whole ceremony to have background music will mean to disturb the attention and recreate another focal point instead of the priest’s words at least at the readings part this can be included. What songs used for wedding readings can one recur to? With the modernism on our side I may say that not only religious music is the one to be taken into consideration and recently not at all. Songs used for wedding readings suitable for the time and for this place can be about slow music, without lyrics, something solemn. Into this category are included names such as Enigma with some of its songs: “Mea culpa”, “Sadness”, “Responsorium” and “Light of your smile” etc. At Vangelis you may like “The Tao of love”, “Titles”, “La petite fille de la mer”, “12 o’clock” and many others.
And since we are at this genre good to be mentioned, prominently, is Enya with its “Only time”, “Caribbean blue”, “Watermark” or “The Celts”. Moreover, in the same style and theme Delirium or Cirque du Soleil may be some others choices.11
