June is one of the most popular months of the year in which to get married. Thankfully, it's finally June in Minnesota, and outdoor weddings are underway.
On today's Learning to Listen, we celebrate perennial-favorite selections of wedding music, including a beautiful wedding motet by Johann Christoph Bach, first cousin once removed of Johann Sebastian.
You'll hear music from Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles' ceremony in 1981.
You'll learn the real title of Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D, and hear other music commonly heard at wedding ceremonies from the Baroque and Romantic eras in classical music.
