"Gordon, thank you
for playing so
beautifully at our wedding. So many of our guests have
told us that they loved your music. You helped make our
day perfect, and I'm very grateful."
"We may be living
in a new millenium,
but when it comes to weddings, tradition holds fast.
That makes someone like violinist Gordon Swift especially
popular for weddings and receptions. His music is
not classical but combines a unique style with Celtic
airs, old-time and Appalachian fiddle tunes, Gypsy dances,
Early American spirituals and several originals. It
is the music that people have been playing at weddings
for centuries, brought to life in the 21st century."
"Thank you for your wonderful performance
at our wedding. Everyone enjoyed!!!"
"I was transported! Your music is so varied,
like different instruments."
"Thank you so much for providing the
wonderful violin music! It added a lovely and
festive air to the cocktail reception, and I know the
guests appreciated the beauty and artistry of the music."
"You are such a
what a wonderful style you've got. And so versatile.
Did I detect some Greek music in one of the compositions?
Makes you want to dance!"
"Thank you so much for sharing your music with all
of us at our luncheon. The tunes you played were both
soothing and uplifting and provided a great atmosphere
for our celebration."
"If you are a fan
of Celtic music, if
you like blues-inflected melodies, if the drone of
Eastern music appeals to you, if you are open to many
different sounds, 'Wondrous Love' is for you. The
13 tunes are filled with spirit and emotion, quiet then
boisterous then serene--an excellent companion on a cold
"I listen to your
CD every day.
I love that it isn't just one type of music. It
helps me to concentrate at work. I put it on when
doing some difficult tasks; I find it relaxes me."
"I love this CD. Gordon's choice of music
and his clean execution of it make this a joy to listen
"Let Gordon know that his CD-rom was great
background music for a romantic evening last night!"
"We are in receipt
of your incredibly lovely CD! Thank you for a real treat for the ears!!"
"I'm a violist and
recently had my "Wondrous Love" CD stolen out of my car in the far-away
tundra of Alaska, where I live. Although I am sure
whoever "borrowed" it (a bear? a moose? a
hooligan?) will no doubt enjoy its contents, I, in the
meantime, am missing it very much. I'd like to replace it
if possible. "
