BobL What Song for Your Funeral? (167* d) RE: What Song for Your Funeral? 25 Jun 20


I would like to have "All is Well" from the shape note tradition (either the version in Northern Harmony, or else Peter Amidon's arrangement of the Sacred Harp one), and/or the West Gallery hymn known as "The Shropshire Funaral (sic) Hymn". However, I've been unable to get to either type of gathering for so long that I'm probably now only a distant memory to most of the SH and WG regulars, and the choir at my parish church aren't all happy with anything out of the ordinary. I may have to settle for whatever New Moon Morris can come up with (I have asked that they attend in full kit BTW).

But in any case, unless I outlive the present pandemic - which I suspect will continue for years yet, whatever science may discover and politics like to pretend - I fear it's likely to be a short private service.
