Last Updated on June 22, Music touches us at a very deep, intimate, and basic level. Which song, or songs, should you pick? Is a particular song appropriate?
The choice is completely up to you, and depending on the rules of where the service is being held, there really is no right or wrong. As funerals become more tailored to reflect the life of the person who has sadly passed away, families are opting for modern songs to be played at the service. Classical music remains a popular choice for funerals, setting the stage for an emotional and moving service. Many people opt for light classical music for funerals, whilst others may prefer a more dramatic piece which reflects the personality of their loved one.
