Planning a Liturgy, Bereavement Mass or other service?
We recognise that music is an essential aspect of any liturgy and that the choice of music can be very personal. The parish has provided a list of both traditional and contemporary sacred music commonly used within funerals. All pieces listed are covered by the licenses we hold or are now in the public domain.
