Live Music

the impact of live music during funerals

Live music has always had an important role within a funeral service, whether it be singing, an organist or something a little different, like a bagpiper or family musician.

Restrictions throughout the pandemic meant that live music was severely restricted, and many families chose to have recorded music instead. Whilst there is nothing wrong with recorded music, especially with the high-quality options available, with the easing of restrictions, it is now possible to consider whether live music is more appropriate.

Live music has a rawness that can instantly ignite feelings, emotions and memories of your loved one, especially if it was an important part of their life.

We have contacts for a wide variety of musicians, from bugle players to bagpipers, from cellists to solo singers. Perhaps you have a musician or group in mind that we are unaware of or are family members. We can advise on the suitability and make arrangements in advance of the funeral to ensure that they have the time and room to perform. In some cases, it might be appropriate to book a longer time at the venue to allow for preparation.

There is no right or wrong with music choice, from classical and traditional to popular and rap, there is only what is right for you and your loved one. Whether you choose to have live music, or high-quality recordings at the funeral service, Rosedale is here every step of the way to guide and advise you.
