Funeral  Music

Encore Occasions regularly provides music for funeral ceremonies in the Dublin area. We work closely with a number of Funeral Directors, who regularly call upon our unique music services.

Drawing on our experience and roster of musicians, we can guide a family through the task of choosing music that is not only suitable for the ceremony, but also reflects family wishes and is faithful to the memory of the deceased.

Naoise is the main female singer with Encore Occasions (listen right). However, you may choose a male voice or instrumental-only music. We will discuss the most suitable instruments to compliment the music chosen and will make all arrangements of booking musicians, providing sheet music, liaising with your priest/celebrant, sacristan and undertaker, ensuring the process is as easy as possible.

Whether you’re looking to arrange a simple, traditional style or have a small ensemble of orchestral musicians, we endeavour to help you select music that means something to your family, provides comfort throughout the ceremony and pays respectful tribute to the departed.

“We use the wonderful services of Encore Occasions on a regular basis. We find them most professional, courteous and accommodating in all our dealing with them. The music at all Funerals is tailored specifically to that person or to their family’s taste, so naturally the musical aspect of any service is at the core of a memorable send off. I can without hesitation wholeheartedly recommend Encore Occasions for any service that may be in the planning…”
