A romantic compilation of the Brobdingnagian Bards most romantic songs. Includes fifteen great tracks of classic music for a wedding, like Pachelbel Canon in F - Variations and The Bridal Chorus by Wagner. Plus, you'll find some beautiful original Celtic instrumentals and very romantic vocal ballads, including music by Chet Atkins and Clannad. The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brAHb'ding-näg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance. They perform a unique style of Celtic folk music that they like to call 'a Renaissance in Celtic music'. Ask their fans though, and they'll tell you the music is just plain 'fun!' With six studio albums completed in just five years, combined with ten other compilations, singles and EPs, they've been called one of the most-productive Celtic groups around. But Andrew and Marc just love playing the music. 'We had planned on having a string quartet at our wedding. While looking on the web for groups, we ran across The Bards. We immediately called Karen's dad, since he was footing the bill, and played Tolkien over the phone. It was an instant hit and we later chose it as the solo for our wedding ceremony. We decided to be a little different and use Maids in the Meadow for the recessional. It was wonderful!' --Karen and Erik Hayden, Newlyweds.
