Last June 2009, we posted here the guidelines issued by The National Shrine of the Heart of Jesus on wedding music for musicians, choirs and singers. This was meant to help the soon-to-be-weds prepare their wedding music. Well, here are the revised guidelines which they issued last year and became effective last October 2011. The cover letter reads:
The parish would like to inform you of the revised GUIDELINES FORWEDDING SINGERS/MUSICIANS. As per instruction of the Archdiocese of Manila– Commission on Liturgy, the Entourage and Bridal march are already part of theWedding Mass so liturgical songs must be played. Only two songs were approvedby the Commission on Liturgy, and these are: CANON IN D and BRIDALMARCH. Love songs are only allowed during picture taking.
The church will implement this instruction effective October 2011,and revisions have been made in our Guidelines for wedding singers/musician(please see attached). All hand-outs given before the said date are now void.The parish in-house soloist and organist have been informed of this instruction. No special requests will be granted regarding this matter.
Thank you for your kind understanding regarding this matter.

As for the attachment, you can download it here in our Downloads section. In case your song is not in their list, you can call the church directly to have it approved. Hehe, we are not connected with the church, this blog is just meant as an additional resource.
