Wedding: based on book of Ruth
April 20, 1999
Listers: It had not occured to me that there might be an interest in a
compilation of the responses to my inquiry about a wedding song based on
the text from the Book of Ruth, but a number have asked. So, here is a
summation of the responses.They boil down to eight or nine titles, with
each one of them being mentioned several times. Not a lot of detail re
publishers, but the titles and composers may be sufficient for you to find
them through your local music dealer.
