Boston's Ceremonial Trumpeter Richard Waddell


Music Examples
In this section you can also see a list of music selections that work beautifully for wedding ceremonies.  It is not meant to represent all that there is, just several I have used and that are often requested.
There are also eight sound files so you can get an idea of what I sound like, as well as what one trumpet and organ together can sound like, and what two trumpets alone sound like. 
The quality here may not be as clear as it would be on the demo tape I provide, but it is a sample.
Click on the appropriate link below to hear a clip of my wedding music.  Please be patient, it will take a few minutes to load!  You will need an MP3 player to listen to these pieces.
