Choosing Music for a Funeral?
Music is so powerful, and it's essential that you choose it wisely for a #funeral service.
Most people choose 3 pieces :
- Processional Music: For the arrival of the coffin
- Period of Reflection- a short piece of music played quietly whilst you remember the deceased
- Exit Music: the final piece as you leave the ceremony
Then you may want hymns, songs or other music to sing or listen to.
In a church, there is generally an organ, as with a cremation chapel. You can also choose recorded music via CD or iPod, or perhaps live musicians
Many crematoria are linked to something called the ' 'Wesley System' , best described as an online library of thousands and thousands of tunes that your funeral director can access for you.
For outdoor ceremonies, such as a natural burial ground, think about amplification via a speaker (and how you will power that - use new batteries, to remove the risk of them running out of juice half way through!)
