Why Have Music At A Funeral?
We find it such a privilege to sing at funerals. We believe that music allows a space for family and friends to express their emotions, to remember happy times, for prayer or mindfulness – music can bring relief. We are honoured every time a family choose to have us sing at a funeral and always endeavour to do a fantastic job fulfilling their requests.
You may need extra support singing hymns, or may want us to lead the songs. Some people choose to have us sing the favourite song of the deceased, or songs that reflect their character. Other choose to have songs sung that reflect their sadness and help them release their emotions.
You may prefer to celebrate the life of their friend or family member, choosing uplifting music or perhaps you would like to have a time of worship and prayer.
It depends on who you are and your desires – we are happy to help you achieve the best possible funeral service.
“This is just to say thank you for the most wonderful performance for the funeral that you and your members gave yesterday, it is very much appreciated. Please convey by gratitude to the other members, you have all got the most beautiful voices.”
Joyce, London, March 2013
Our Funeral Package
We know that funerals are more expensive than you would first think, and that keeping the cost down is important.
We therefore charge 25% less to sing at funerals than our other events. We are also flexible with our line ups – you don’t have to book four singers, but can go with one or three singers if your budget won’t allow for four.
We recommend booking our pianist as this gives you a lot of flexibility when choosing songs.
- You can have as many songs as you like within the funeral service itself.
- It’s an all inclusive price – you can have as many or as few songs as you like in the service. We can play songs from an iPod through our PA system and if you book our pianist/organist, he can also play solos.
- We can also sing a cappella at the burial if you wish.
- Choose one, three or four singers (or more).
- We can bring our own small PA system and keyboard if needed.

“You were brilliant last Friday at Matthew’s Service to Remember. Thank you so very much. You made a huge difference to how everyone felt on the day and lifted everyone’s spirits to a new high. You deserve every plaudit you get. God bless you all.”
Maureen and Roger, Oct 15
“What can I say other than the biggest THANK YOU! Your service was outstanding, especially at short notice and with specific songs to learn. My mum would have most definitely approved! Which for me was the most important factor – as it was my duty to fulfil her wish. All of you are incredibly talented and blessed with indescribable voices – really! Everyone in attendance sang your praises – you guys made our hearts melt and it was said your voices/performance was like honey… Your songs will forever embellish such a bittersweet memory.” Steph, Bedford, Nov 2013
