Contemporary music for funerals

Music at a funeral can evoke wonderful memories, or the lyrics of favourite songs might express feelings and sentiments about the person and the life they lived. You can mix up both traditional and modern music, playing on entrance, in-between the readings or eulogies, and at the departure.
