We have posted our entire "Demo CD" online. The pieces have also been categorized into where they have most commonly been used during a ceremony. Don't let this dictate what is played when for you! It's your ceremony; have pieces when you want them. However, if you're looking for guidance, these are some recorded suggestions.

All of these tracks are recorded as a trio. To hear the difference between a Duo, Trio and Quartet, look to the bottom of the page.

Arioso usually performs as a trio, though we offer quartet and dou appearances as well. For very large or wind-prone outdoor venues, a quartet is more appropriate. For most other venues, a trio produces a sufficient amount of sound and has enough texture (different instruments) to make the performance musically interesting. Below are Duo, Trio and Quartet recordings of Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary to show the difference in sound.
