Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
In my various social capacities I attend rather more funerals than I would wish. The choice of music varies from the sublime to the ridiculous, but one time when the sobs from the attendees were audible was when one elderly gentleman chose to say farewell at the funeral of his wife of sixty-odd years with an old recording of Kathleen Ferrier singing "What is life to me without thee" from Gluck's "Orpheo". Not a dry eye in the house!

For me? "Lay down your weary tune" will do nicely!
