We continue on with the Wedding Challenge series of articles, featuring the playlist from the second stage “Something New”. My last article featured the playlist from the “Something Old” challenge, so if you want to recap, read the previous “Wedding Challenge” post.
If you remember the old matrimonial rhyme “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”, then the naming of this series will make sense!
The “Something New” stage, called on TPC members, to compose a new wedding march. The much used, “Bridal Chorus” (“Treulich geführt” in German), from the 1850 opera Lohengrin, by German composer Richard Wagner, apparently has a 70% usage rate in weddings across the US, so a new composition could be a lucrative windfall for a savvy composer!
The TPC community had 7 days to write & record their submissions & unfortunately only garnered 4 entries, but they were all gems in their own right.
Enjoy the following playlist & revel in these talented composers from all over the world!
