The song is ended, but the melody lingers on...
Irving Berlin

Funeral songs and music are intended to honor the deceased and bring comfort to those who are grieving. For many, spiritual songs for funerals offer exactly that combination. That is particularly true for those who led their lives in a highly spiritual or religious way.


Historically, spiritual songs for funerals were confined to hymns that would be sung primarily during religious services. These days, the variety of available music is much broader and includes subgenres such as contemporary Christian music. These range from traditional hymns by artists such as Bach and Mozart to contemporary songs by artists such as Mercy Me.


For many people choosing a mix of traditional hymns to provide the comfort of familiarity, along with newer music that is uplifting and inspirational is the perfect solution. The only right way to develop the soundtrack for the funeral you are planning is the way that works for you or for the deceased.
