Our Music Ministry seeks to provide music that reflects the beauty of every couple on their Wedding Day at Ss Peter and Paul. Our Director of Music collaborates with each couple during the preparation process, guiding them to select music that is meaningful, heartfelt, and unique.
Ss Peter and Paul provides piano, organ, and a vocalist for each wedding, though couples may request to feature other instruments such as trumpet, violin, cello, flute, and/or additional vocalists from our parish musician staff. Music from the Classical period is best suited for your special and sacred day.
The melodies offer rich musical expression, which will memorably accompany this milestone in your relationship. Some favorite titles include:
Air, from Suite No. 3 in D – Johann Sebastian Bach
Bridal Chorus – Richard Wagner
Canon in D – Johann Pachelbel
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring – Johann Sebastian Bach
Hornpipe, from Water Music – George Frideric Handel
Prelude in C- Johann Sebastian Bach
Ode to Joy – Ludwig Van Beethoven
Rondeau – Jean Joseph Mouret
Te Deum – Marc Antoine Charpentier
Trumpet Voluntary – Henry Purcell / Jeremiah Clarke
Wedding March – Felix Mendelssohn
Couples are welcome to request songs not featured on this list, but will only be included with review and permission from the Music Director and Pastor. Meetings to plan Wedding Music generally take place about 1-2 months before your confirmed wedding date, following the completion of your necessary paperwork with our Parish Office.
Our Music Ministry team looks forward to celebrating your love through music!
