Selection of Wedding Songs

I have been invited to play violin solos in a wedding ceremony for a church couple. During the selection of songs, I came up with Bach’s “Arioso” from Cantata “Ich steh mit einem Fuß im Grabe!” (BWV 156) which is a beautiful song and had been played in weddings,

It was originally for “tenor” singing and had been played with various instruments such as:

1. organ

2. cello

3. violin

I decided not to use this piece because the name is “I stand with one foot in the grave”. However, I shared with you because this is a beautiful music piece. Besides the name, the music itself is romantic and serene. If you are interested, here is more discussion on the song http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV156-D.htm
