Modern wedding string quartet for hire in London and UK

Palatine Gig Folders

This is the list of the actual music we take along to each event. For obvious reasons it is impossible to carry the entire library of music as listed on the repertoire page, so we have assembled a folder containing approx 110 songs which is approximately 7-9 hours of (constant) music (based on each song being 4-5 mins in length). All these songs have been selected based on the most frequently requested songs and also some of our favourites (marked with an *). This folder has been assembled mainly for weddings but would be completely adaptable for other types of events too. As we generally play sets of approx. 45 mins – 1 hour in length this will mean we can fit in about 10-15 songs per set.
