Advice For Selecting Funeral Hymns

Music is important to creating a desired mood for any event. When planning for a memorial service, the deceased's preferences should always be the foremost consideration. Whether they were the type who would have wanted funeral hymns with a somber tone or those with a celebratory flair, following a few tips could make the selection process a little easier.

Above all, any special requests and instructions that were made by the deceased ought to be honored. If they have left no directives of this type, start by considering if they were more likely to appreciate an old religious classic or would have preferred something more contemporary. The service is intended to reflect the style and personality of the honoree.

Being lovely, meaningful and touching are great attributes for a hymn, but there are a few more aspect to consider before making a selection. For starters, a decision should be made as to whether the song will be sang by an individual, a choir, the congregation or if a recording will be played. The performance method will effect the tune's appropriateness.

Some pieces have arrangements that are best suited to a trained voice or for a choir. When a congregation is meant to sing together, it is best to select songs that are easy to sing and commonly known. Choosing something less familiar will result in several people being unable to participate in that tribute.

Consideration should be given to the appropriateness of the words in the songs. The best choices will convey the proper sentiments and be easy to follow. If the words are too complex or the structure is confusing, the attendees may not be able to relate.

Choosing funeral hymns means balancing several factors. The primary being the preferences of the deceased and the second what is best for those in attendance. Some other aspects of consideration are the mood, speed, content and length of each song.
