Funeral Services

Choosing the music for a funeral is something you have to do in a very short space of time and under considerable pressure.

Fidelma has a wealth of experience to guide you through this difficult task.

For a Funeral Mass, you will need songs/music for the following:

  • Opening Hymn
  • Psalm
  • Gospel Acclamation
  • Offertory
  • Communion
  • Recessional

For a Civil or Humanist Ceremony, there is no set format, and you can choose any music that is meaningful to you. Fidelma's wide repertoire gives you plenty of choice.
