Wedding of the Fairies is a suite comprising two waltzes with an 8-bar introduction and a finale with themes from the 1st waltz. It was published as a companion to Fairy Kisses (1908) and shares that composition's elegance, charm and simplicity which strongly contrast to the Johnson's rags and his other pieces. The cover of the original sheet music is a gaily illustrated affair showing a slightly portly fairy in bridal attire. She has the most gorgeous butterfly wings that any fairy on her wedding day could aspire to; before her, tiny fairies are strewing blossom. All this should be borne in mind when performing Wedding of the Fairies. Those who enjoyed Fairy Kisses will certainly delight in this piece, just the stuff to celebrate a wedding with a difference.
Wedding of the Fairies was published by Chas. L. Johnson Publishing Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
