Harpist Anne Roos recorded several
samples of music from her extensive playlists to give you an idea of the
wide variety of music that you can request.
Select “Greensleeves” and “French Melodies of the Third Crusade”
for samples of Renaissance and early music. “Star of the County Down”,
a traditional Irish waltz, is a great selection for Celtic wedding music. “Carrickfergus”,
a traditional Irish air, is a beautiful tune that can be played during your ceremony,
behind your vows, or during the lighting of a Unity Candle. Lovers of new age music:
Sample Enya’s “Watermark”, which is a lovely melody that also
sounds beautiful during the ceremony and for the seating of guests.
For more samples of Celtic music, listen to Anne’s
Celtic music albums on
Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, and
iTunes. In particular, her CD, “Haste to the Wedding”
is filled with romantic Irish wedding music designed to accompany any wedding.
To hear traditional classical selections, “Canon in D” is popular
for the wedding party’s entrance, and is frequently selected for the bride’s
entrance. Many bride’s still choose “Here Comes the Bride” or
“The Bridal March” from Lohengrin, by Richard Wagner. The Angelical
Hymn sounds like wedding bells, and is often played as the joyous recessional selection.
Below are just a few of Anne’s renditions of modern popular music: “All
I Ask of You” from Phantom of the Opera, Disney’s “A Whole New
World”, and “Unchained Melody” from the movie “Ghost”.
To hear more modern popular music samples, download samples of tracks from Anne’s

“Anne went above and beyond to make sure
everything was perfect for our day. Her song selection library is quite extensive
and she took the time to send me links and talk to me about which songs to choose
to fit our preference and our theme. All of our guests were in awe of her talent
and everyone commented on what a wonderful touch it was to have her at our wedding!
Thank you Anne!”—Tara C., Sacramento, CA
