Music Choices

Music Appropriate for Funeral Liturgies

In time of grief and sorrow we often turn to music. Music expresses what words alone cannot and can be a great source of comfort and hope. It can also inspire new or renewed faith in you, your family and your friends. As Catholic Christians, we celebrate Mass focused on the resurrection of Jesus Christ who, by his death and rising, has saved us and brings us everlasting life; therefore, the music reflects this theme.

With these thoughts in mind we have compiled a list of music below. We encourage you to choose from among these songs and hymns since this will enable full participation from everyone and offer a richer experience of God's love and mercy.

† Songs with one cross contain the word Alleluia, which is not spoken or sung during the season of Lent

(generally February through early April).

†† Please note: songs about the Blessed Mother Mary are limited to the Preparation of the Gifts. If you’d like a

Marian hymn, please choose only one.
