We recently published a list of suggested songs for use in small churches which got some great feedback as a helpful resource. We’ve had a request for a similar list of songs suitable for a funeral. Now we don’t have much experience of this so we thought we’d throw it open to you for some suggestions. I know from funerals that I have attended, the words of the songs suddenly have a much deeper meaning and of course, not everyone in the congregation will be a regular church goer.
I would suggest that you think about songs in the following categories:
- Contemporary Christian music
- Traditional hymns
- Classical musical
- Secular music tracks
Please add your idea in the comment box below. I know this will be a real help to many.
Needing backing tracks for a funeral?
If you are having to plan a funeral but don’t have musicians then take a look at our Split Track Backing Tracks. These are a mix of contemporary songs and traditional hymns with a tasteful worship band accompaniment. It includes a video for projected on-screen words but if you wanted to have a printed order of service you could simply use the backing tracks as audio. You can choose to include a lead vocal or have a singer lead the singing.
