Note: Despite the severity implied by its name, this piece works very well as a slow wedding processional. The Solemn March is great choice for those who want a traditional sound without relying on the standards. This arrangement includes alternative parts for violin 2 or viola. The violin 1 part can be played on flute, trumpet or oboe.
