Hello, I am getting married this fall (November) and for my vows I would like to do something different. My fiancée loves listening to me play my viola, even though I do not do it for him very often. What I would like to do, since the place we are getting married at has a projector, is have my vows written out on a power point over the projector while I play a song on my viola. The problem is, I am having problems finding a song. I would like something on the slower side (possible slow-moderate) with a difficulty of mid to advanced. I am looking through the songs on here, but so far nothing has really hit. If you have any suggestions please let me know! I appreciate all the help I can get right now. Oh yea, I would prefer a solo, although I can have a pianist, but again, something that is just me playing. Thank you.

I think either Rachmaninoff's "Vocalise" or Albinoni's "Adagio" would be perfect. You could also look into something by Brahm, since he did a lot of slower songs, for the most part I would stick to post-baroque music (late 1700's- 1800's), you'll find a lot more emotional pieces that way.

Loads of wedding tunes come to mind: Air On G String, Canon in D, Lascia Ch'io Pianga (that might work really well, as it's slow and beautiful, and people know it, but it's not overdone), Nessun Dorma, or O Mio Babbino Caro

There is loads of viola sheet music here:

Hope that helps
