Kent Baker Music

Wedding Planning

The wedding is a service of worship, during which a couple unite their lives in the presence of God and in the company of those dearest to them. The music for their wedding reflects this Christian joy!

I am familiar with a wide variety of literature and will be happy to assist in finding sacred music which reflects the couple's unique feelings, yet upholds the integrity of the Wedding Mass. To arrange a meeting (in person, or by telephone), please e-mail

I will be happy to arrange for one of our excellent vocal or instrumental soloists, or will gladly serve as cantor, if desired. If the couple asks a friend to sing or play at the wedding, a rehearsal time should be arranged.

I will begin a program of music thirty minutes prior to the Mass.

A list of repertoire, by no means exhaustive, is included below. Click on any link to listen to the selection.

Note: Music selections should be finalized one month prior to the wedding date.

Planning guides from selected Web sites

Music should be selected for the lighting of the Unity Candle. Possibilities include Where There Is Love and Wherever You Go.

If there shall be Communion, a Communion hymn or meditation (such as Schubert's Ave Maria) should be selected.

The above Web sites list a number of possibilities.
