The Cotswold Ensemble String Quartet near Whitchurch, Bucks.

Special Requests

Our string quartet repertoire list has well over 750 items from before Bach to well beyond the Beatles. We have classical favourites, classic pop, recent pop, rag-time, show tunes, folk dances, tangos, and classic dances. Chances are we have your favourite already or we can source it for you. But if it is not available commercially for string quartet or string duo, we can arrange it for you for a modest fee. Arranging hymns for church weddings comes free of charge.

We can accompany a singer at your ceremony - your friend or a professional colleague of ours - and we can adapt the accompaniment to suit. This usually needs advance notice: please ask.

A few of our special arrangements  - variously made for performance during wedding ceremonies, for "big" birthday celebrations, for wedding anniversary parties  - are:

  • The Girl in Satin
  • It had to be you
  • All you need is Love*
  • Going to the Chapel
  • Glasgow Love Theme
  • Imperial March (Star Wars)
  • When you say you love me
  • The Very Thought of you
  • How Deep is your Love
  • The Secret Wedding
  • The White Cliffs of Dover
  • A Thousand Years
  • What a Feeling
  • At Last

* Amore solum opus est...


"As for the "special arrangements" bit - I am so grateful for your help in making that work - and work so well."
