In Memoriam - Music for Funerals

The latest CD from WMC Records (www.cdsforlife.co.uk).

Featuring 27 exquisite tracks (see below for listing) the CD provides ideas for all parts of a Christian funeral service, and includes serene organ music; hymns both restrained and rousing; favourite solo and choral vocal items (including Schubert's Ave Maria) and even a beautiful rendition of the Last Post.
 
Suitable either to help with the selection of music for a funeral, or to be played at the funeral itself if musicians are not available, it is sure to be of help to both families and professionals alike.
