The Air on G String is an arrangement of the second movement in Johann Sebastien Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068. The Orchestral Suite was composed in the first half of the 18th century. The Air war originally written for strings and basso continuo, but was arranged by August Wilhelm in the late 19th century for solo violin and strings or piano accompaniment. He indicated on the solo violin part that it was to be played On the G String, which is why the Air is now widely known as the Air on G String.
The Air on G String is a beautiful piece that can be played almost anytime during the ceremony. You can use it as a prelude, a processional or anywhere you see fit.
