Music

Music is an integral part of most funeral services whether religious or otherwise offering solace at a most difficult time.

For religious services we can arrange soloists, organists and other musicians as required. Funeral ceremonies in Christian churches will generally be required to only have religious music and hymns during the service. A selection of suggested hymns and psalms for the Catholic Funeral Mass can be viewed below.

Non-religious and civil services can have live performed or pre-recorded music (on CD or electronic format).

A committal service in the crematorium (following a religious service in a church) provides a family with the opportunity to play an appropriate piece of non-religious music (on CD or electronic format). Live performances at the crematorium can also be arranged.

Pipers or other musicians can also be arranged for the graveside at cemetery burials.
