St. Luke’s Wedding Recessional

Brass Quintet

Grade 5

4.5 minutes

Premiered by Quantum Brass, May 11, 1996 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Brownsville, MD.

Decent MIDI realization:

I wrote this piece as a gift to my wife on our wedding day! Naturally, I thought if it was good enough my own wedding, surely others might feel the same. To my delight I’ve had a few friends and family exit the church to it. So, wedding planners, lose the grossly overdone Mendelssohn and go with something new and exciting! Also works as a concert piece, of course.
