UPLIFTING MUSIC ~ PROFESSIONAL SOPRANO SINGER/PIANIST
Rebecca specializes in music for Catholic funerals. All too often, funeral music is drab, uninspiring and usually unprofessional and so not befitting of a final farewell. A funeral is not only the last send-off for a loved one, but it is also a deeply spiritual ceremony, filled with important rituals and meaningful moments that you will hold in your heart forever. Never was it more important to have appropriate and carefully chosen live music, that honours the memory of our loved ones and comforts and consoles those left behind.
Rebecca's ethos regarding funeral music is that it should always be spiritually uplifting and hopeful, in keeping with Christian belief. Her choice of hymns is always tasteful and elegant and performed in a fresh and modern style, self-accompanied on piano, with a sound that is clear and pure to inspire and uplift. Along with tried and true classic and traditional hymns, played and sung in a style that is relatable in the 21st century, Rebecca also has a selection of beautiful modern hymns and will help you choose those best suited to your family.
All equipment, including piano and P.A system, is provided, to save any hassles around whether or not the church's system is up to par.
Rebecca is very familiar with the Catholic liturgy and will guide you each step of the way. You are also most welcome to leave all of the music decisions up to Rebecca and not worry about a thing, so you can focus on yourself and your family at this difficult and challenging time.
The Archdiocese of Melbourne has very particular guidelines in relation to funeral music, including that recorded music is avoided and that parts of the mass are sung, where possible. You are safe in the knowledge that Rebecca adheres to the guidelines of the Archdiocese at all times. You can read the guidelines here The Archdiocese of Melbourne Guidelines for Catholic Funerals
