The “Marche Nuptiale” was first written as theater music for the play Conte d’Avril by the French playwrighter and poet Auguste-Léon Dorchain. This was a four act comedy based on William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. After several versions, including one for two pianos, Charles-Marie Widor finally transcribed the “Marche Nuptiale” for organ in 1892. Peter Bongaerts beautifully arranged this work for concert band.
