Music for Funerals

The choice of music for a funeral is one of the most important aspects of the ceremony. The music, whether modern or classical, should ideally be in keeping with the taste of the person who has died, whilst also providing comfort to the bereaved. We can offer help, advice and suggestions in choosing the most appropriate type of music that fits your own particular tastes and requirements.

Some families like to use recorded music, but many prefer to hear the music performed live. If you engage some musicians for the ceremony, they will not only be able to perform the music you have chosen, but will also be able to lead the singing. A choir, of any size, large or small, will make a profound and striking impact at any funeral service, whether it is being held in a large church building, or the more intimate setting of a crematorium or cemetery chapel.

Paul Williams Independent Funeral Directors are able to arrange first-class and award-winning choirs, ensembles and soloists, accompanied by organists of a similarly outstanding calibre. All are sensitive and discreet, producing immaculate arrangements of music, appropriately tailored and customed to your own personal needs.

We are also able to supply harpists, trumpeters, Irish and Scottish pipers and other solo instrumentalists (such as buglers, flautists, violinists etc), alongside brass, wind and string ensembles, marching jazz and brass bands, and orchestral-style groups.

Please call 0161 796 6018 if you have any questions about music for funerals.
