The Cotswold Ensemble String Quartet near Whitchurch, Bucks.

Special Requests

The Cotswold Ensemble's string quartet repertoire ranges from before Bach to well beyond the Beatles, including 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. If it is not available commercially, for a modest fee we can arrange it for your event. Arranging hymns for our quartets to play at church weddings is free of charge.

We can accompany a singer at your ceremony or event,  either your friend or a professional colleague of ours, and we can adapt the accompaniment to suit. This will be discussed beforehand and included in your contract with us.

Our special arrangements can be made for a wedding ceremony, a "big" birthday celebration, a wedding anniversary party, a naming ceremony. Our many examples include:

  • 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
  • The Swan
  • 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."
