Funeral Music


Music can be a great comfort at such a difficult time and is an extremely important part of a funeral service.
It is usually only Hymns permitted during Church Services. We can offer a choice of Organist and Soloist or Harpist and Soloist and other musicians can be arranged if required.
Please feel free to sample our resident Harpist and Soloist’s repertoire by clicking on


During a Comital Service or Civil Service in a Crematorium Chapel the music can be either religious and non-religious and is usually played from a CD, however, musicians can be arranged if required.
A selection of suggested hymns for the Catholic Funeral Mass can be viewed below. This is only a sample list designed to assist in choosing the music with the Soloist. There are many more hymns available on which the Soloist will be pleased to offer guidance.
