"Blessing of the Young Couple Before Marriage," by Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret (1880-81)
Wagner's Wedding March (AKA "Here Comes the Bride") may be the most famous tune connected with the marriage ceremony, but it’s only one of many classical works that celebrate the union of two people in holy—and, occasionally, unholy—matrimony.
In this hour, music by Wagner, Bach, Mendelssohn, Rimsky-Korsakov, Goldmark, Grieg, Saint-Saens, and Maxwell Davies.
