Wedding Music Selection

There are many beautiful music choices for your wedding to celebrate your love for God and the love between a husband and wife who are embarking on a spiritual journey.  We have selected the music below to assist you in your plans.  All music must be sacred music which is reverent and approriate for the House of God.  No secular music will be allowed. Secular music is best used at the wedding reception.  

Saint Clare of Assisi Church is equipped with an electric organ, a grand piano, and a state of the art sound system. Couples may make requests regarding the use of organ/piano and their preference. Some musical selections are only able to be played on the organ. If you have questions, please ask the Director of Sacred Music.

These suggestions are not meant to limit you, but rather give you a starting point. If you have other pieces of music you would like, please notify our Director of Sacred Music to discuss it. If a piece requires printed music be purchased (i.e. If it is modern and not yet in the public domain or no suitable public domain version exists), the couple must purchase the music or reimburse the organist for any music purchased (sheet music typically costs between $2 and $10 per piece).
