As long as there are weddings, there will be a need to locate appropriate music for the wedding ceremony and its celebration. This book indexes over 190 separate collections of wedding music, containing several thousand different titles and renditions. In addition to traditional wedding compositions, hundreds of modern love songs are also included. Most of the works are written for some combination of voice, piano, or organ, but some music for guitar and other instruments is also indexed. Indexes by title, first line, composer, and type of instrument make the book easy to use. Complete bibliographic descriptions of each source provide accurate identification.
