Funeral Music Playlist

Funeral Music Playlist – Music is an important part of any funeral. Music can speak to people in a way that words cannot. Music can be comforting, consoling and bring back happy memories. Many families choose to sing hymns but many families choose one or more pieces of modern music which capture the emotions of the day.

Whilst there are literally thousands of suitable songs, we have created a Funeral Music Playlist selection of 20 to give you some ideas. There is a list below but we have also created a playlist on youtube so you can listen as well.
