Does anyone here know of music that would be good for paying after a baptism service? Im due to play one soon, and was told that a bach p+f wouldn't be ideal. Does anyone know what might be?

 

 

Something from Handel's Water Music springs to mind!!

How about Flor Peeters' prelude on Winchester New (On Jordan's bank....)? ("Thirty Short Preludes" Peters 6195)

I always go for something approachable, due to the "non-churched" who are always there, and not too loud so as not to frighten the baby!

 

For the baptism of the son of the local "Blue Cross" people some years ago I arranged and played the theme from "All Creatures Great and Small".

 

I I played it again at the crem last week for the funeral of the mother.

Messiaen. Indoctrinate the child quickly.

 

 

Absolutely. Give 'em Les eaux de la grâce. :lol:

 

Why not go one step further and play Passacaglia from "Lady Macbeth of Mstensk" by Shostakovich?

 

:P
