The Choice of Music in a wedding celebration is very important. It is encouraging to see more and more couples caring what kind of music will be used for their wedding. All couples are encouraged to attend one of the Wedding Music Workshop here at Resurrection at which all aspects of the Music Program will be explored.
The Parish Music Director/Organist will work with you to plan your wedding music. He works on a contract basis and is the only authorized organist to perform at Resurrection. Musicians from outside the parish may be employed in special circumstances but only with the prior knowledge of, and in consultation with, the parish music director.
Often requests are made for currently popular songs of questionable liturgical value. A reading of their lyrics will often reveal that they in no way refer to the sacred aspect of marriage. All music at a wedding should reflect the reverence and dignity befitting the Sacred Liturgy. A song which has no relationship to the liturgy has no place in the wedding celebration. Music from secular sources, Broadway, and popular love songs would be more effectively used outside the religious celebration. All requests for music at your wedding must be discussed with and approved by the Music Director and Celebrant.
This list is just a starting point and suggestions to popular wedding music.
