Hymns and classical music have traditionally provided the musical accompaniment to the funeral service. While these remain popular, more and more people are now being remembered with their favourite pop songs, songs from musicals or even music recorded by family and friends. All local crematoria now have the facilities to download music of your choice and play it during the service, in addition to the option to provide an organist. If the funeral is being held at a burial chapel or church, we can arrange for someone to play the organ at the service. We can also provide a choral accompaniment for crematorium services.
We know a number of professional soloists who will perform at funeral services. Some prefer to sing classical music or hymns, while others offer a much wider selection. Whatever your wishes, we will endeavour to fulfil them.
Having a piper to lead or play at the funeral service can be very dramatic and is steeped in tradition and symbolism.
Whether you are looking for a New Orleans jazz band or a string quartet, our funeral arrangers will endeavour to organise this to make the funeral as personal as possible.
Personal attendance will always be the first choice, but for those unable to attend, a webcast or recording of the service at least provides the opportunity to watch the event. We can offer this service if the funeral takes place at certain local crematoria. The webcast enables anyone in the world to watch the funeral live in full-screen video, without the need for any technical knowledge or special software.
