Funeral Music and Song


Funeral music should have a relevant basis. It should be either a favourite of the deceased, a song which applies to the personality of the deceased or reflective of his/her era.

I was driving recently, and "Remember Me' was on my car radio and I
had to pull over as it was affecting me so much. At the time, I felt it was
one of the best pieces of music I had ever heard and certainly wonderful at
springing open the floodgates of grieving and loss.
I am speaking of the song (Dido's Lament) by Purcell from Dido & Aeneas. It is so powerful.
