Harpist NW01 Repertoire List

This is only a sample of this Harpist's repertoire.

Weddings

Although the choice of music for the Wedding Ceremony is very much a matter of personal taste, certain pieces are often requested for the three key elements where music is required: the Processional (entrance of the Bride), the Signing of the Register and the Recessional (exit of the couple).  As a guide, some suggestions for these are given below.

Please Click Here For My Bollywood Harp Repertoire.

Please note that music of an obviously religious nature (eg. Ave Maria) is not allowed during a civil ceremony.

The general repertoire section contains suggestions for pieces that can be played both prior to the Ceremony and during the Drinks Reception and Wedding Breakfast, and also as background music for other functions. These are categorised according to musical style.                              

Many of the pieces can be heard in my ‘Sample Music Clips’ section.
