The music at funerals should support, console and uplift the participants and should help to create in them a spirit of hope in Christ's victory over death and in the Christian's share in that victory. The ideal is to have music which reflects the Paschal mystery, hope and consolation. Below are some suggestions to assist you in choosing music. Our Director of Music will assist you in your planning.
