Four Strings provided a string duo for the 28 July 2012 wedding of Kitty Coers and Robert McDaniel, held in the chapel of Park Cities Presbyterian Church, Dallas, TX.
Music for the prelude was all classical, drawn from the broad repertoire of our duo, String Duo Dallas. The ceremony was traditional as well, excepting the Recessional, for which the groom chose a personal favorite: the Exultate Justi of John Williams, originally heard in the 1987 film Empire of the Sun. Entirely too large for a string duo, we performed the piece in an arrangement featuring J. Marty Cope at the piano.
Here is a performance conducted by Williams himself.
Seating of Family: Air from Orchestral Suite 3 in D (Bach)
Bridal Party: Sheep May Safely Graze (Bach)
Bridal Processional: Canon in D (Pachelbel)
Recessional: Exultate Justi (Williams)
