Top Funeral Songs

In times of sorrow, funeral music can say what the heart finds no words for.

Music provides quiet background while guests find their seats, and at the conclusion of the service as people leave.

During the service, often favorites songs of your beloved, may be played, interspersed between eulogies and readings.  If possible, I  like to let the audience know  that the song selected was important to the deceased and explain why.   

A favorite song may be played in the background of the funeral video tribute of your beloved’s life.

In religious ceremonies, one or two funeral hymns are sung during the service.

You may, if you like, have a soloist. Or a performance from a profession musician or musicians. Some have bagpipes played at the end of the service . When it comes to contemporary songs, they should make you reflect on life, the passing of time, and spirituality.

You'll find a large selection of:
