Music For Baby Funeral


Important ABC's Of The Best Memorial Hymns

Choosing the music for a memorial service is a very important task as it sets the mood and overall tone of the occasion. The preferences of the deceased should always be respected, especially in regards to whether they would like upbeat melodies or somber tunes. There are a few guidelines one may use to make the best selection of funeral hymns.

If the deceased has made prior requests as to what they would want played at their service, such wishes take priority over all other considerations. In circumstance where there are no directives of such nature, the planners should contemplate the type of music the one being honored would appreciate most. The service is, after all, meant to be their final farewell.

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.

If an individual, choir or musical ensemble is to perform the piece, selecting a more specialized arrangement is acceptable. When the congregation is expected to sing, it will be necessary to choose something that is fairly well known and in an easy range for most people. It would not have the same effect if only one person were familiar with a song intended for all.

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.

Selecting funeral hymns is a matter of balances. It entails weighing what the deceased would have liked and what the attendees will be able to sing. Length, content, speed and mood are also things that will need to be taken into consideration.
