Funeral Delft
Bagpipe music at a funeral Music is an important part of any funeral service. The bagpipes have been commemorating the loss of our loved ones with music at funeral services for hundreds of years. Many people associate bagpipes with funerals. This is because they powerfully touch our deepest emotions. The soulful and haunting sounds of the bagpipes express feelings that words alone may fail to convey. It is ‘live’ music that I bring, I am available to the people, in contrast to distant, electronically produced music from loudspeakers. This music can be played in the church or other building where the funeral service is held, but also as the coffin is being borne to the deceased’s final resting place in the graveyard or crematorium.
