I have been looking but to no avail. I must be looking the wrong way or in the wrong places.
My ceremony will be at a Catholic church in Orange County. I want my music to be gregorian chants and perhaps a children’s choir can do this. The thing is I don’t even know where to start. How do I find these kind of resources and I how much do they cost? I need to know if I can even afford it. I mainly need the Ave Maria sung. Can anyone offer any info??

Find your musician first, then have a meeting with them with some of your ideas and they can lead you in the right direction. I found my musician by asking my priest. You can also check the church bulletin for the phone number of the music director. If a nearby church has a choir you like then call their music director. Good luck! Ceremony music was hands down my favorite part of the planning process. There are so many options and talented people out there.
ETA: if you’re on a budget a choir will be expensive. My organist and cantor cost $400 total

Not sure if you want a recording, but there the vienna boys choir has songs avaliable on itunes and Ave Maria is on there as well as many others. If you need live musicians, my advice would be to google children’s choirs in your area and mabe shoot them an email to see if they were avaliable, although I have no idea how much that would be. Also maybe check some local colleges to see if they had any choirs that could sing, but I still have no idea about the price. Ave maria also sounds beautiful on string instruments! Hope that helped 🙂

Or a person with Opera style would work too!

Hmmm well I am indeed on a budget and if a choir is considerably expensive I should probably stick with my church’s option. I had not considered using recorded music until this post, but I am definitely going to look into it. Thank you so much bees! I appreciate it!
