Tunes for a memorial service/funeral
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here, but I’m happy to see the discussion section is still alive and kicking! I have a bit of a difficulty that I would love y’all’s input for.
I was asked to play for a memorial service/funeral, and they won’t give me any other suggestions other than “something beautiful”. Not real helpful. I’ll be opening the service, to get everyone’s attention and quiet down to get things started, and I need ideas for tunes, songs that sound nice played instrumentally, etc.
I’ve already got: Sweet Journeys, The South Wind, the melody to the song ‘Wally Wally’ (it also goes with several hymns), possibly Be Thou My Vision.
I’ll be playing on a silver flute (I know, I know, I’m sorry, but it projects much better than my Irish one and this thing is outside, and I can do more with it).
Any input is very welcome!
