Selecting funeral music can be difficult. You must find something significant while not upsetting family members and other attendees. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we have seen many families struggling with determining the right type of music for a cherished one's funeral. Here are several pointers to assist you in determining the best option:

1. Classical Music Is Your Best Bet

Classical music is the best bet and can be very soothing. Numerous violin and piano works have an emotional quality and a calming rhythm that are appropriate for funerals. Cellos and violins come close to replicating the raw passion of the human voice, and there is a good chance you will find some music that matches your needs.

2. The Decedent's Favorite Music

Many people select funeral music based on their loved one's preferred songs, bands, or genres. Although they aren’t the best option, they do lend a more intimate touch to a funeral service. You simply need to ensure that the pieces are appropriate for the occasion and will not cause the attendees undue discomfort. Discuss your selections with other members of your family before compiling the list.

3. Uncommon Songs

Certain family members choose special songs that reflect their loved one's personality. They explore songs with lyrics that really speak to them and provide comfort to mourning family members. Although this is a risky option, it has the potential to bring something unique to the occasion. Consult with your family members on the music to ensure there are no objections before adding it on a funeral playlist.

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process.
