Music for funerals

The hymns you choose for the funeral Mass must be Liturgical hymns and relevant to the part of the Mass when the hymn is being sung. Popular and non-Religious songs are not permitted during the funeral service.

Siobhan has broken her repertoire down to help you to choose hymns suitable for the parts of the Mass where music is appropriate. You can browse through the list to make your choices or print out your own copy to take away to discuss with other family members.
