Respond in Love seamlessly marries six of the most popular wedding processionals with the Entrance Antiphons from The Roman Missal, Third Edition. Liturgically sound and musically pleasing, each processional encourages assembly participation in praying the antiphons with simple, recognizable, and singable melodies. Each Antiphon can be prayed as a vocal solo or call-and-response. This resource pairs perfectly with The Order of Celebrating Matrimony, Second Edition.
Respond in Love is scored for cantor/congregation, keyboard, guitar, two C Instruments, and two B-flat Instruments. Assembly reprint files are available on OneLicense for easy insertion of congregation parts into wedding programs.
