    The world of sacred music is vast and every person experiences some form of sacred music and/or music in a liturgical setting at some stage of their lives. Most people remember the music used for special occasions at school and at First Communion, Confirmation, and Graduation ceremonies, and some may even remember singing at these services in the school choir. Others remember particular church services they attended where they were deeply moved by the music or remember a particular piece of sacred music sung at a service or concert. But for many people, the first time they find themselves choosing music for a liturgical service is when then arc getting married.
    When considering music for your wedding service it is good to begin by looking at the theme of the readings you have chosen for your special day. If you blend the choice of music with the biblical texts, your liturgical celebration will feel unified and the ceremony will be deeply moving and uplifting. Your choice of music will also be determined by the type of service you have chosen. If the marriage ceremony is to take place in the context of a Mass or Holy Communion
    Service the musical needs of the liturgy will be different from a marriage ceremony within the framework of a service based around what may be called the liturgy of the Word. Finally you must consider the musical resources which you will use. Some couples want only organ music, others prefer a string trio or quartet and others use a combination of forces from organ and soloist (singer or instrumentalist) or harp and soloist to full choir with soloist(s) and small orchestra.
    Most of the music you will find on `Wedding Memories from Ireland can be performed by soloist and/a choir with organ accompaniment. The trumpet voluntaries may lie played by organ alone, or for a more festive ceremony with solo trumpet. With the exception of Mozarts `Alleluia which is a very demanding piece and requires an experienced singer, the other solo items are well within the range of most soloists. The choral pieces, with the exception of Durufles beautiful Ubi caritas which requires an experienced choir with basses who can reach a bottom Eb, can all be sung by good amateur choirs.
