The Italian Ground Rules! I am considering using GG's recording of it in place of the standard wedding march when I get married (someday). I guess I'll have to pick a hall with a long entryway so the recording has time to get to the really good stuff. Either that, or I'll have to make it an extremely leisurely stroll down the aisle... :-)
