Once you have planned your wedding ceremony with a priest or deacon, you should contact Kristin Berger, music coordinator. Kristin will help you find a pianist and/or organist, at least one singer, and any other instrumentalist you envision for your big day. From there, you can select music with the musicians you have hired.
Please note that the resources below are a good starting point, but not an exhaustive list. Each pianist and singer will have additional pieces in their repertoire.
St. Mary has Breaking Bread, Gather 3rd Edition, and Voices as One hymnals as well as other resources for sheet music if you would like something beyond what is listed below.
Preludes Usually three preludes (either vocal or instrumental pieces) are chosen. This music begins about 10 minutes prior to the Mass or ceremony as guests are walking in.
Processional This is typically a more grand, instrumental piece that is played while the priest and/or deacon, groom, bridal party, and bride process down the aisle.
Choose any three from the following list for prelude pieces and any organ or piano piece for the processional:
Responsorial Psalm This is a part of the liturgy of the word and is sung after the first reading. It is a call-and-response between the cantor and the congregation. Couples often work with the priest to choose the psalm. These are some of the most common:
Also, we can also find a setting of just about any psalm you would like.
