Today I’m looking for funeral music: 3 classics to work into a fairly traditional ceremony to celebrate the life of a grand dame. Nothing too dramatic. Something soft. (We’re Scottish after all, so easy on the romance.) See our choices.
Funeral as a celebration of life
These days, we often look upon a funeral as a celebration of life as well as an opportunity to mourn a death.
Funeral, ceremony, wake, memorial… whatever you call it, these goodbyes are all ‘rites of passage’ – events for friends and families to come together after a death to say farewell and honour a life. Ceremonies called ‘life celebrations’ may also be held before a death.
