Having a Catholic wedding but not with the full mass?

The Responsorial psalm and Alleluia are in the quartet's repertoire and we are happy to play it for those parts of the liturgy at no additional cost. If you'd like us to perform with a family member, friend or church cantor as the soloist there will be an additional $100 charge for the extra rehearsal.
