More people are requesting contemporary music during funeral services. The music chosen by the family, or requested by the person who has died, is music that they liked and listened to during their life. This often means it is lighthearted rather than somber. When you plan a humanist funeral with Essential Funerals there is no restriction on the music you wish to play.
