Music For Your Wedding is a timely resource which contains thirty songs and hymns in various musical styles: contemporary liturgical songs with organ. piano and/or guitar accompaniment, hymns, traditional Irish melodies with texts in English arranged for keyboard and for small ensembles (for example Irish harp, flute and violin) and Irish language settings. There are biblical canticles and psalms (including the special responsorial psalms provided in the Lectionary for the celebration of marriage), a Jewish blessing prayer and modern compositions.
This collection will encourage solo singers at weddings to exercise their liturgical ministry as cantors, that is, to sing the verses and invite the congregation to sing the refrains.
Music For Your Wedding can also be used during pre-marriage courses. Couples could be given the peoples edition and invited to listen to the cassette tapes together. This would challenge them with a rich and attractive presentation of the great themes of the sacrament which they are about to celebrate: covenant, fidelity, marriage `in the Lord, the great commandment of love, the bond of the Spirit and the providence of God in their lives.
