Music for Weddings and Funerals


The Cathedral Music Staff is honored and happy to help you in preparing and planning your funeral liturgy.  Please feel free to contact the Cathedral Music Office at (815) 722-6653 x235 with your questions.  We look forward to working with you.



Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  We are delighted that you have chosen to celebrate the sacrament of Marriage at the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus.  As part of utilizing the Cathedral for your wedding liturgy, we have included the services of two professional musicians to help you celebrate your special day: a vocalist who will serve as the cantor and an organist/pianist.  Should you desire additional instrumentalists, including but not limited to a professional choir, string ensemble, brass ensemble, harpist, or any other solo instrument, we would be delighted to make those accommodations for you.  Please note that requests for additional musicians will require additional fees.  

In order to help insure that your wedding liturgy is both memorable and worshipful, we would like to assist you with selecting music for your wedding.   As this celebration is both a sacrament and a liturgy, it is necessary that all music selected for your wedding be both sacred and appropriate for this type of liturgy.  In order to assist you in selecting appropriate music, we have provided a number of musical suggestions below for each portion of the liturgy.  All of the music listed is also in the Cathedral’s hymnals and will therefore be available for your guests when invited to participate in this very special liturgy!  If you would like to request a piece of music not listed below, please contact me with that request at or by phone at 815-722-6653, ext. 235.

Please complete the Wedding Music Selection Form located in the side bar area and return it to me by email at, by mail to 604 N. Raynor Avenue, Joliet, IL 60435, or in person to the Cathedral office, Attn: Marco Melendez, by no later than four weeks prior to your wedding date. In choosing your music, it may be helpful to utilize YouTube, iTunes, and other media resources to listen to the selections listed on this form. Please feel free to contact me for any questions you may have during this process.  May God bless you on celebrating this special sacrament!
