The selection of your music is perhaps the most important aspect of your wedding.  Appropriate music will create that special ambience you are looking for, and original compositions will establish the uniqueness of your ceremony, mood and personality...From a CD or Cassette, the option to use pre-recorded music will require an "in-house" audio system or a stereo CD or cassette player that you bring to the ceremony...At a fraction of the cost, it is arguably the most economical alternative to hiring musicians and vocalists...The horse and carriage heard in the intro to the composition not withstanding, and although not originally written for this purpose, "The Arrival" has been used as a musical suggestion [prelude to the ceremony] from the bride to her guests in attendence at her wedding, signaling her intention to begin the ceremony. This lovely musical transition serves to subdue and alert attendees to [find their seats] in preparation to the imminent custom of "The Processional," solemnly culminating at the altar...


Minuet in D

By Leland Thomas Faegre


Forwarded to 'Domino Music' and MTV by Taxi.  The Music Supervisor for a popular reality show on the biggest Music Television Network in the world asked for “Great Teen Network Drama-esque Instrumental Score.”


'Minuet in D'

Description: The horse and carriage heard in the intro to the composition not withstanding, and although not originally written for this purpose, 'Minuet in D' has been used as a musical suggestion [prelude to the ceremony] from the bride to her guests in attendance at her wedding, signaling her intention to begin the ceremony. This lovely musical transition serves to subdue and alert attendees to find their seats in preparation to the imminent custom of  'The Processional,' solemnly culminating at the altar...

Story Behind the Music: Originally entitled 'The Arrival,' the story board in my mind suggested a romantic European setting [circa 17th century] of a yeoman street sweeper and his unrequited affection for a gentry class woman of considerable means, transported by horse and carriage.

Background Audio: Horse and Carriage

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"

In addition, Art Channel is also available by the Neuf network in France.  From Wednesday 6th February 2008, Art Channel will also be available 24 hours a day on this network - channel 104.  French speaking viewers see here whilst English speaking viewers, can read more here.
