Misc. Comments

Traditional Norwegian weddings started with a wedding procession from the bride's home to church that were led by fiddlers be it by walking, riding or on boats across the fjord. Among the numerous local traditional tunes, this particular Bruremarsj (bridal march) is associated to the historical Øre church overlooking the Batnfjord (now part of the Gjemnes Municipality). As the Øre parish lies in the Nordmøre region, the same march is sometimes also called Bruremarsj fra Nordmøre. A further alternative title Brureslått (Bridal folk melody) emphasizes that this is originally an instrumental piece of folk music. While in the 19th and 20th century other local bridal marches (such as e.g. the ones from Lødingen and from Østerdalen) appeared more popular across Norway, the Bruremarsj fra Øre over the past decades gained particular popularity by organ, brass and choir versions as well as a vocal version recorded by Norwegian soprano Sissel Kyrkjebø.
