Music is a central and unifying act of worship during services at the Memorial Church, and your wedding ceremony is no exception. We strive to offer diverse music of the highest quality to augment and enhance the spiritual nature of your ceremony. The following list, by no means exhaustive or prescriptive, contains the most common musical selections chosen for weddings here.
Each selection is recorded on each of our two pipe organs, a 2012 Fisk organ in the rear gallery of the main church and a 1929/2010 Skinner in Appleton Chapel at the front. While either instrument may be used for ceremonies in the main church, it is advised that ceremonies confined within Appleton Chapel utilize the Skinner organ. When choosing an instrument for the main church, be advised that the Fisk will have a more direct and regal sonic effect overall; the Skinner’s sound will be a bit more distant and ethereal in general. Only one instrument should be used during your ceremony.
There are primarily three types of songs to consider for your ceremony: preludes, processionals, and recessionals. As you choose music for your ceremony, please consider the mood that you would like to create.
