Tune of the Day: Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals
Karg-Elert's Portraits are 33 short pieces for organ or harmonium, each one dedicated to a musician, from Palestrina (a Renaissance composer of the 16th century) to Schoenberg (early 20th century). The fifth piece, commonly known as “Praise the Lord”, is a festive fanfare in the style of Handel that in recent times has become somewhat famous as a wedding recessional. It was notably played at the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden on June 19, 2010.
Thanks to Ines for suggesting this piece!
