    Hi, I'd like some suggestions for music for the big day please :) I'm having a catholic church service but not a full mass, my friend who has the voice of an angel is singing for the ceremony and playing the piano but I'm not sure what songs to have.

    We've chosen Eva Cassidy Songbird to be sung (probably during the signing of the register)

    So I need one for walking down the isle to and walking out.

    Any suggestions would be welcomed :)

    Thanks, Clarantino xx

    i'm walking into an arrangement of Woodlands - it's the tune for Tell Out My Soul, and DF is going to add some twiddly bits and extra octaves and stuff to make it sound more processional - maybe your organist could do something like that? (It's like entering to a hymn, but not have to worry about the guests paying too much attention to the hymnbooks instead of you!)

    we're walking out to Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks La Rejouissance - which sounds like this with a full orchestra, - it is available for Church Organ, so I'm sure your organist will know it (or at least know of it).

    sorry - is your friend playing the piano for the whole service, hymns and everything, or just for her piece?

    Can you have Ave Maria as you enter? I know it can't be had for civil ceremonies but I imagine it could be sung in a catholic church? x

    That's great that she'll od that for you! makes it so special.

    I was wondering if she's playing for hymns, as if you have a big church, the sound of a piano might get lost among all the people. :)

    I'm undecided as to if we should have a hymn or just nice songs really, it's not too big a church, think she'll bring a PA system with her anyway :) xx

    that sounds like a lovely set-up, then.

    most guests don't sing anyway, so they'll just enjoy listening to her :)
