Wedding Music Piece of the Week

George Gershwin’s ‘Our Love is Here to Stay’ is a beautiful tune that would add something special to any wedding/civil ceremony.  The lyrics are very fitting for any romantic liaison and could easily stand up as a reading for the occasion too:

“It’s very clear, our love is here to stay
Not for a year but ever and a day
The radio and the telephone and the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go
But oh, my dear, our love is here to stay
Together we’re going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They’re only made of clay
But our love is here to stay”

The Lochrian Ensemble will be performing this piece in their next concert this Saturday 23 March at St Mary’s Church, Yatton.  Other works on the American Themed programme are Barber’s poignant Adagio, Dvorak’s wonderful American Quartet and favourite tunes from Gershwin, Porter and Leroy Anderson.
