Top Five: Songs for the Recessional

Gale Curtis, Curtis Music

1 Od Yishama: “It’s perfect for traditional Jewish ceremonies. The bride and groom should always go out on a happy note.”

2 Signed, Sealed, Delivered: “Ah, yes, Stevie Wonder. My business has changed. It’s more about the daughters than the mothers these days.”

3 “Wedding March,” by Felix Mendelssohn: “From Mendelssohn’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Simply a classic.

4 You’re the First, the Last, My Everything: “That Barry White string hook keeps everyone moving.”

5 Alla Hornpipe: “The hornpipe section of George Frideric Handel’s ‘Water Music’ adds a touch of majesty to the ceremony.”
