We were unable to afford an orchestra for my daughter's outdoor wedding but this CD provided us with absolutely majestic music! We were able to use enough speakers to make it sound live and it made all the difference in the ceremony! There were enough beautifully played songs for the prelude and processional and recessional! Awesome!
