A Selection of Instrumental Funeral Music

Music seems to say what the heart has trouble finding the words for.

A formal funeral may include a selection of music by Bach, Chopin, Fauvre, Brahms, or Schubert - often played on the organ or by a single pianist, guitarist, flutist, or vocalist.

It is perfectly acceptable in some settings to play a tape of your favorite compositions.

Here are a number of instrumental music selections, mostly classical, for services both formal and informal that I have collected over the years. 

A selection of videos of several of these instrumental selections:

Chopin Funeral March 


Dance of the Blessed Spirits by Gluck


Preludes Chopin Op.28


Elegy by Faure


An Ending by Brian Eno
