    Ah… I've been wondering where your parish is located. (The sjnmusic dot com site doesn't give a clue… anywhere!) Now I know.
  • I've recieved one duet that I am looking favorably on...but the difficulty may be in finding texts to set....what texts do you think may be especially appropriate?
  • Appropriate texts for weddings?

    Check, of course, the Graduale Romanum and Graduale Simplex. Also look at the “Deus Israël” introit that Solesmes omitted from the 1974 Graduale Romanum (but remains part of the modern Roman Rite via the Ordo Cantus Missæ).

    Psalm 128 is the classic one, but 34 also has some appropriate passages, as does 145.
