Schubert - Ave Maria
00:00 / 03:40

"I cannot thank you enough for the perfect singing you gave us at my mother's funeral. I will never be able to forget the beauty of your voice in The Lord Bless You and Keep You. You moved us all." 

Following the death of a loved one, the funeral is the event on which everyone is focussed. Now is the time to celebrate the life of someone special to you. Live music at such a poignant time provides a fitting touch to any funeral service, whether a crematorium or church service.

 

A song provides a powerful and meaningful part of the ceremony especially if your loved one had a song they held dear, a song they used to sing, or a song which marked a special occasion.
