The choice of music that is chosen to be played at a funeral service is very personal one. Music is used to inspire memories of the deceased and to create mood, it it used to welcome, reflect, and to say goodbye to loved ones. Often a suitable piece of music may have a long introduction, or sections that are perhaps not fitting for the occasion; sometimes it can be just a particular segment of a classical piece that would be a most fitting tribute.

Working to your exact requirements any piece of music can be edited to suit your personal needs, ranging from the removal of certain segments, repetition of verses to longer loops made of any favourite music. If there is a song or a piece of music that you require for the service but do not possess, please let me know, I have an extensive library available which I would be happy to edit to your requirements.
