Bridal Chorus ("Here Comes The Bride") audio file
Hello! I am an independent musician in Chicago, and I'm offering my arrangement of "Bridal Chorus" ("Here Comes The Bride") for purchase.
Due to the popularity of my YouTube video, many people have contacted me to ask whether they could purchase the recording for use in their own wedding, or just to be able to listen to it whenever they want.
I'm releasing the recording with the highest audio quality available -- a WAV file, which is CD quality audio in digital format. If you purchase this, you'll get access to an MP3 version, too. In purchasing this audio file, you gain full rights to broadcast it at your event -- and keep it for your listening enjoyment, of course.
I'm asking $10 (American dollars) for the song. To purchase it, just send $10 via PayPal. To make the payment, click the following "Pay now" button and submit your PayPal payment information. It's fully secure, and credit cards are accepted.
Important note #1: Once the payment goes through, you should see a link to "Return to Merchant." After you click that, you'll get a link to the sound files right away. Even if you don't see this link or forget to click it for whatever reason, I will e-mail you the link after I receive confirmation of payment -- usually this is between 0 and 24 hours of payment. You can always feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Important note #2: I will send the e-mail to whichever e-mail address you use with PayPal. Make sure this address is still valid! Occasionally I e-mail people the files, the e-mails get bounced back to me because the account is no longer active, and I have no way of contacting the person. If you don't hear from me in a few days, contact me with the PayPal transaction ID and I'll get you the file.
Frequently asked questions
How soon will I get the music?
Immediately. After you enter your payment information, you should see a link to "Return to Merchant." After you click that, you'll get a link to the sound files right away. Even if you don't see this link or forget to click it for whatever reason, I will e-mail you the link after I receive confirmation of payment -- usually this is between 0 and 24 hours of payment.
Can I get the music on a physical CD?
No, I'm only providing the music via download digitally, due to CDs being a pain to mail, shipping costs, etc. But it's very easy for you to create your own CD once you've downloaded the song from me. The advantage to you is that you don't have to wait for a CD to ship.
There's a noticeable twang around 1:13 into the YouTube video. Is that twang in the recording that you're selling?
No. A number of people have asked me about this, so I rerecorded the song from scratch and offer that new recording when you've purchased it. (It's the same arrangement of the same song, just rerecorded.) I also offer the version from YouTube, if you like that despite the twang. The choice is yours -- you'll get access to both files.
I like your improvised introduction in the YouTube video, but would it be possible to download the song without that intro?
Yes! Once you've made the purchase, I provide a separate copy of the file without the intro. So it starts immediately with the "dum dumm dum dumm" theme.
Is it possible to get the song without the outro?
Yes! I also include a version of the YouTube recording with the Bridal Chorus and outro split into two separate files, so you can use one for the procession and the other for the recessional.
Exactly what format is the song in when I download it?
I provide a 320-kbps MP3 and WAV for both versions of the song (original and rerecorded).
How long are the recordings?
- Original version: 2:37
- Original version (only Bridal Chorus): 2:19
- Original version (only outro): 0:22
- Rerecorded version: 2:29
- Rerecorded version without intro: 2:08
Do you have guitar tab/transcription of this arrangement available?
Yes! Here's a link.
I'm not in the U.S. Can I still purchase this?
Yes -- PayPal handles all of the currency conversion for us.
I'm a DJ who does weddings a lot. Can I reuse this at multiple weddings?
Sure, you have my permission.
