The Signing of the Register

The signing of the register usually takes from 7 – 12 minutes, so if your favourite piece of music is only two or three minutes in length then you’ll probably have to choose two or three pieces of music so that it will cover the 7 – 12 minutes. I suppose that if you did choose something that was too long there would come a point when I would have have to stop playing but the piece would have to be excessively long. Here are some examples with the duration of each piece included.

Here are some popular songs that can be used for the signing of the register. I usually play my own arrangements when it comes to popular songs. This means that they can be a little different each time I play them and I cannot really give a set duration for each piece. It is therefore wise to pick 2-3 pieces for this part of the ceremony.
