CanticaNOVA Publications offers the CNP Wedding Suite which includes new and fresh music for organist, cantor, soloist or choir, as well as the Marriage Gospel excerpted from our Book of Sung Gospels for the priest or deacon. If you're looking for a convenient packet of "new traditional music" for weddings, check out this link!

Liturgical Hints & Ideas:
The Marriage Ceremony, whether celebrated within Mass or alone, is a divine sacrament of the Church. Music chosen must be appropriate in dignity to the serious yet joyful covenant proclaimed. Any music not worthy to be used during Mass, should NEVER be considered at a wedding. While the couple may rightly be involved in the selection of music for their wedding, they must be led to realize that the Church demands certain standards which must be upheld. Popular music or music of a questionable nature is best saved for the reception.
