Bruremarsj Frå Verdal

Not a hornpipe at all, but a bridal march from Verdal in Nord-Trøndelag, Norway.

There is another wedding march connected with Verdal, often heard sung by choirs. Not to be confused with this one.

I got this tune from a pile of music sent to me from Norway. This one stayed in my head.
There is an excellent version played by the Verdal musician, Geir Egil Larsen (plays tussefløyte and other wind instruments) and his family on their album "Frå setervoll til dansargolv" (from mountain meadow to dance floor) - Geir Egil Larsen og tjukke slekta (Geir Egil Larsen and close family). On the album, it is titled "Bröllopsmarsj i C frå Verdalen" ("Verdalen refers to "the dale" not the village in another part of Norway).

Wedding marches, or bridal marches, are very much part of Scandinavian traditional music.

Enjoy the high C! The groups of slurred notes in bar 5 can be played as triplets.
