St Mary the Virgin Church, Bozeat

On Saturday our string duo played for a wedding ceremony at St Mary the Virgin Church in Bozeat  Northamptonshire. I hadn’t been to this village before and it dates from Saxon times; its unusual name probably means Bosa’s gate – Bosa being a local earl who owned lots of land a  long, long time ago.  The wedding took place in the  secluded St Mary the Virgin Church, which is as pretty and traditional as you would hope a village church might be.

Our programme
The bride had requested  Bridal Chorus for her entrance, Moon River, Flower Duet and Somewhere ( from West Side Story) for the signing, and Viva la Vida as exit music. We also accompanied two hymns: Amazing Grace and Morning Has Broken – my own favourite hymn. All of the pieces we performed were our own  sheet music arrangements.
