Following the death of a loved one, the funeral is the event on which everyone is focused. This is the time to celebrate the life of someone special to you, and to mourn their passing.

Live music at such a poignant time provides a fitting touch to any funeral service, whether a crematorium or church service.  A song can provide a powerful and meaning 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. 

As an experience Funeral Singer Joan will help guide you through the process, help you with a suitable choice of music and then perform the song(s) sensitively and with compassion.




A good choice of song(s) could

include :-

1. Ava Maria

2. Panis Angelicus

3. Pie Jesu

4. Lascia ch'io pianga

5. Con Te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye)

6. I Vow to Thee My Country

7. You'll Never Walk Alone

8. Somewhere over the Rainbow

9. I will always Love You

10. My Heart Will Go On

11. You Raise Me Up


Fees for singing at a service start from £60
