Alisann and Daniel at Royal Lane Baptist

This week's upcoming wedding ceremony at Royal Lane Baptist Church presented an interesting challenge. The couple chose for the bridal entrance a traditional hymn - Come Thou Fount - but in the setting of the Paul Cardall recording, which features piano, solo strings, orchestral strings, cymbal rolls and a healthy dose of reverb. In short, a very cinematic soundscape.

Creating the transcription and trying to achieve an orchestral sound and feel with only a string quartet is mostly painstaking work - at least for this musician. But, that is all but forgotten if it makes the client really happy. Looking forward to trying the arrangement out on Saturday!
