This famous wedding march is originally from Felix Mendelssohn's suite of music to Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. Often played on pipe organ, this is a recording of the original orchestral scoring. A grand, triumphant piece, it is often used as a recessional at weddings.
Intended as a brief recessional after a wedding, this version ends after the main theme has been completely stated, at just under two minutes long. The last six minutes of the original piece, not included here, involve several new themes which alternate with the main melody.
