Music at funerals

Music has long been associated with funerals and it doesn’t just have to be hymns or songs.

Carefully chosen music can be uplifting as well as sad and is often selected because it meant something special to the person who has passed away; maybe a particular pop or folk song, or a piece of classical music or opera; the possibilities are endless and we’ll help you to ensure the chosen music is available on the day.

Whether you want live or recorded music, we can help you find the right musician or music track. The vast majority of funeral venues can now cater for both live and recorded music, but there are still a few places that are unable to provide the necessary facilities or have special criteria to be followed. We are happy to advise and assist.

Securing the services of a choir is not always straightforward as they generally comprise individuals who are engaged elsewhere during the working week. However, we are always happy to make enquiries through our contacts to enable a choir to be provided if possible.
