Got mine 2 days before the release date!! Glad I did because this is yet another stunning compliation from Classic FM. Yes, while there is always some degree of repetition on all of the CD's, these are usually all different versions so this adds variety to anyone's collection. Also, there are several new tracks which I have never heard before on a Classic FM CD, so this is also great news.

As always, the quality is brilliant and well worth the extra pound or two that such a recording would command. There is a wide variety of music in this collection, so as they state, no matter what type of wedding you want, there's somethine for everyone's tastes!

I should also add, don't wait until your wedding day to buy this - It's great for all round listening as well!

Weddings 2008 is Classic FM's third compilation album of the year, a timely release to help with the music choices for the summer wedding season. It's the second of their Wedding `Best Of' collection (the last one was Music for Weddings in 2006) and this time the clever marketing people at Classic FM have helpfully divided the music into church music and civil music, recognising the confusion that can exist when deciding which music is allowed at each ceremony. Sacred music, of any religion, is forbidden by law to be played at a civil wedding while the registrar is present.

This is helpful, considering many pieces traditionally associated with church ceremonies, such as Mendelssohn's `Wedding March' which evokes images of the just-married couple walking down the church aisle, are actually non-religious works so can quite happily be played at a civil wedding. The Registrar will always have the final decision on whether the choice is lawful, but it can avoid disappointment by knowing the rules beforehand.

Helpful too (Classic FM really are getting good at this) is the categorisation of each track into its recommended part of the service, such as arrival of the bride, hymns (churches only remember!), signing the register, and when the bride and groom leave. (No choices for the evening reception, that's one for a `Classic FM party mix' perhaps).

Best of all though is the quality of the performances and recordings, which are a selection from familiar names like Pavarotti, Alfie Boe, Bryn Terfel, Renee Fleming, Emma Kirkby, The Sixteen, Elin Manahan Thomas and the Choir of Kings College Cambridge. Most of the recordings date from the 1990's to 2000's, with a few from the 1970's and 80's which are of equally high standard.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Neal on 27 July 2009
Although the music is good, there aren't that many to choose from. I thought I'd be inspired by lots of options but there are only a few for each part of the day. We are struggling with suggestions for my arrival and there are only about 3 to choose from, one of which is the traditional 'Here comes the Bride' piece! The others are for other parts of the day, signing of the register, for example. It's ok if you know the peices of music and want to a good copy but if you're looking for inspiration it's a lot of money for what you get. The other CD can't be used for a civil ceremony due to the religious content. I was a little disappointed with this CD.
