Music, perhaps more than any other choice you make, can have a huge impact on the style and feel of your occasion.
A traditional or favourite hymn might be appropriate for a formal church burial, but there is greater freedom than you might think even in these circumstances. You might want a piper to pipe you in, a singer to perform your favourite aria, or use a recording of a well-loved hit.
For a Life Celebration then the musical world is your oyster. Your favourite style be it jazz or folk will stamp your personality on the event and your guests will almost feel you are there. Musicians might wish to record their own version of a song to be played in their honour, a powerful and moving self-tribute.
