Order of Christian Funerals
Funeral Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Canticles
Below, you will find links to recordings of various hymns, etc. for funerals.
Many of the links will take you to professional recordings on YouTube or Spotify. (You don't need accounts to listen on either platform).
Some will take you to "amateur" recordings hosted on another site.
A CD will be available soon.
Entrance Hymns are below, followed by Psalms, Offertory, Communion, and Recessional.
If a link doesn't work, it probably means that a recording does not yet exist but will be coming soon!
Some of the recordings may have verses that don't exist in the printed version found in the planning booklet. They may also skip a verse or two, or there might be slight word differences. We will sing the version in the booklet.
