Suggested Wedding Music



Suggested Wedding Music
The canons and rubrics of the church govern the selection of music for special services such as weddings, as well as those of Sundays and holy days.  Neither popular music nor secular operas are appropriate.  ‘The words of anthems are to be from Holy Scripture, or from the Book of Common Prayer, or texts congruent with them.’ (BCP, p 14).

A compact disc recording on the church's organ is available from the office to assist you with your selections.
