Music is an important part of a funeral service

Music is powerful and choosing to include particular music as part of a service can help make it particularly meaningful and personal. If your loved one had a favourite song, you might like to consider including it in the service. You can also use music to remind guests of a certain time in the deceased’s life, a meaningful relationship or to leave them with a special thought or message.

Music is one of the most powerful forces in how we experience the world. Wherever there are people, there’s also music. It’s an innate part of who we are as human beings and sets the tone for moments, big and small, throughout our lives.

More than just in the happy moments, music also touches our hearts and minds in moments of sadness. When someone we love dies, we turn to music to help us process our feelings of grief – so it’s an essential element of funeral services. It helps us give a voice to feelings, embrace memories, connect with others and create ceremony.
