Since you are having it in a church, you more than likely have restrictions on what you can and can’t use, hence the list you were given. Typically, only music that is religious is allowed in churches. The idea of (secular) classical music being accepted is very new and many churches don’t allow it and say you must use religious music only. Before you decide on anything, go back and ask the lady who gave you the list if there are specific restrictions or not and what all they include. It would definitely suck if you picked something you love and then aren’t able to use it because it’s not religious.

If you are allowed to use classical music, then anything would be fine as long as it falls in the guidelines of what they accept.

There are just as many non-denominational churches that have such restrictions so don’t assume that every church is identical. In your case, go with whatever you love. What type of songs do you like?

Have you spoken with the organist? I’m guessing that is a different person than whom you originally spoke with. Find out what she is able to play that you are interested in hearing. Not every classical piece works with just an organ. Do they have a sound system you can use and bring in a cd of your favorite pieces?
