Music for the Signing of the Registers


Graham Hallett was for many years organist of St Mary's, Putney.
The following guide is intended to help wedding couples make their choice of music for their ceremony.
Apologies that these are imperfect performances; the 88 excerpts were dashed-off; recordedonto MiniDisc over two evening sessions.
  Digital audio music clips

The following is a short list of some of the most suitable and most requested pieces of music - for the registers, or before the service.

Each digital audio clip has its own controller. If you don't pause the one you're playing and start another, you will get quite a chaotic experience. Unfortunately these clips will not play on iPhone or iPad; you will need a desktop with sound.
