I am trying to plan out the music for the ceremony and getting zero help from the priest as far as what is and is not allowed. I’m wondering if anyone can suggest to me a list of songs for a processional OTHER than:
Canon in D
Ode to Joy
It would be very helpful since I don’t have any list to go off 🙁
I’m getting married in a Catholic church as well, and I spoke with the music director this morning and she told me I could choose any song I wanted, it didn’t have to be religious. I’m not sure what song to use as my recessional, but I’m using Yiruma “river flows in you” (I think that’s what it’s called) as my bridesmaid processional.
I have a friend who used Sunrise, Sunset (from Fiddler on the Roof) for the processional in a Catholic church… mine were just the standard Canon in D and Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring though (boring, but they were beautiful when the string quartet played them!).
