Funeral Songs For Mom


Few Tips For Writing Memorial Hymns

Music is important to creating a desired mood for any event. When planning for a memorial service, the deceased's preferences should always be the foremost consideration. Whether they were the type who would have wanted funeral hymns with a somber tone or those with a celebratory flair, following a few tips could make the selection process a little easier.

If the deceased has made prior requests as to what they would want played at their service, such wishes take priority over all other considerations. In circumstance where there are no directives of such nature, the planners should contemplate the type of music the one being honored would appreciate most. The service is, after all, meant to be their final farewell.

A hymn may be very beautiful, touching and meaningful, but there are a few other things that should also be considered. To begin with, determine whether or not the songs are to be sung by the congregation, by a choir or if a recorded version is to be played. This decision will have a huge impact as to which tunes will be most appropriate.

Some arrangements are only effectively performed by the trained voices of a choir or talented individual. For a group of voices not used to harmonizing, it is best to choose songs that are of moderate range and are well known. Everyone will not be able to participate if the tune is difficult or unfamiliar.

Consideration should be given to the appropriateness of the words in the songs. The best choices will convey the proper sentiments and be easy to follow. If the words are too complex or the structure is confusing, the attendees may not be able to relate.

Choosing funeral hymns means balancing several factors. The primary being the preferences of the deceased and the second what is best for those in attendance. Some other aspects of consideration are the mood, speed, content and length of each song.
