Suggested Funeral Music



Suggested Funeral Music 

The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised. (Prayer Book, p. 507)
 Hymns, sung in the liturgy, are to be only those authorized by the Episcopal Church which includes all past hymnals (Prayer Book, p. 14). For pastoral reasons, the use of hymn texts and tunes from the 1940 Hymnal may be appropriate. 

A compact disc recording on the church's organ is available from the office to assist you in your selections.
