Description
Description: Full brass setting of "Here Comes the Bride", followed by a transitional fanfare that modulates to the on-screen key in the following cue (Steiner also moves seamlessly into the tempo of the onscreen performance)
On-screen: A marquee advertising "Marriage on Stage Tonite"
Music annotations: [m. 29] fff / sfffz; [m. 30] gliss / s dr; [m. 31] sffz; [m. 38] morendo / dim / track starts male voices and piano (already recorded) / into voices already on track
Film annotations: [m. 29] Dissolve
Orchestration annotations: [m. 29] 4 horns / tutti / full brass (open) / 3 trpts / tub / 2 trbs / 3 trb / tuba etc / timp roll; [m. 30] T.C.; [m. 34] T.C.; [m. 35] W.W. harps cel piccolo etc; [m. 37] horns
Analysis: Steiner set this in Bb to match the key of the pre recorded singing; it blends seamlessly into the vocal track; measures 31 and 31A are pasted over Steiner's original manuscript, likely adding a little extra time to match with the on-screen voices; the paste-over is not in Steiner's hand
