Music in a Christian Wedding
A Catholic Wedding Ceremony derives much of its beauty from the music performed for each part of the service. It is valued because it helps the congregation pray together. As St. Augustine said, “He who sings, prays twice.” We have a comprehensive list of hymns & songs that you could need to make your wedding memorable. All we ask, as a matter of courtesy, is that after we have chosen music together, you discuss your choices with your celebrant.
How Many Songs or Hymns do you need?
The amount of music sung at your wedding depends on the style of ceremony you are having. Should you choose to have a Short Service without the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you would generally only need songs. You do not need any hymns other than perhaps a Responsorial Psalm (this is optional between the first & second readings, it generally breaks up the monotony of the readings). If you are having a full service with the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you must choose hymns that will suit the right time of the mass as well as songs.
Music is a servant in worship. It is never to be done for its own sake within a celebration of Christian worship. The music chosen for your wedding should be chosen to suit the different parts of the whole celebration. The text of sung pieces should always respect the particular emphasis of the action & gesture being celebrated.

We are able to learn music but only with advanced notice (limited to 1 song/hymn). If insufficient time is given to learn a song, we may need to play a CD version & not sing it live.
If you need more info or to discuss more about the music, give us a call on 9631-1996, leave us a message, & we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
