I’m in Zhytomyr, Ukraine as I write, spending a couple weeks with my daughter who lives here and works with Last Bell Ministries, helping rescue older orphan kids – “graduate orphans” who have aged out of their orphanages.
Since I’ve been to Ukraine almost a dozen times, I thought it would be interesting to find out what typical Ukraine wedding music is like and if we have any songs in common at our ceremonies. My daughter, who lives in Ukraine, has attended a couple weddings here, and I have many friends and acquaintances I can tap for information.
I’m leaving tomorrow for a 3 day wilderness trip/sports camp with leaders and Ukrainian teenagers, so it will be awhile before I have enough information on Ukrainian Wedding Music for a good overview.
We hope to include a couple of the most loved Ukrainian wedding hymns or songs on our Wedding Music Samples album, abailable December 2010.
