Wedding Music Piece of the Week

John Rutter is the King of Christmas Music.  The Lochrian Ensemble love playing a selection of his pieces at this time of year at weddings.  Imagine the scene: a cold, crisp winter’s late afternoon at a fairytale country house with a Christmas tree adorned with decorations on one side of an open fireplace, a crackling fire warming the sumptuous room (Clearwell Castle and Coombe Lodge spring to mind as perfect winter venues), a string quartet on the other side of the fireplace playing a beautiful arrangement of Rutter’s Christmas Lullaby to a backdrop of candlelit window sills – and a newlywed couple greeting their guests with warmed mulled wine and mince pies – PERFECT!
