Funeral Song

Linking in with Eden from Edenland for Funeral Songs as part of the Fresh Horse Brigade meme - this one touches just a little too close to home for me right now given my post from yesterday and, it is something I have never really thought about much.  I remember watching the funeral of Hansie Cronje (South African cricketer) on TV after he had been killed when the mail plane he was travelling in crashed, and the choir of the high school he had gone to had sung Ava Maria and I had thought that would be a lovely song to sing.

I do remember once when I was going through an Enja phase that I would like Evening Falls played :

When the evening falls and daylight is fading
from with me calls - could it be I am sleeping ?
For a moment I stray, then it holds me completely
Close to home - I cannot say.
Close to home - feeling so far away.

I  may just have to spend some time with my music and have a look to see what I would like (and make a note every 4 or 5 years to update it !!!)

I know I have used this TFTD before but I am using it today because it has a lot of relevance to me and my family right now.

TFTD : It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead.  The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time - Winston Churchill


  1. I love that Winston Churchill quote. I think people worry too much about things in the future, that may not even happen, completely out of their control.

  2. weirdly I have thought about this before and my funeral song would be "what a beautiful world" louis armstrong. Sending you a big hug xx

  3. I hadn't read that Winston Churchill quote before, love it.

    Just read your post below this one .. how happy is your dad on your wedding day! Cancer is bloody dreadful. Wishing you and your family some positive thoughts and good news.

    Thank you for joining in .. Enya is a great choice!


  4. i love that quote, it is so true.

    and the lyrics to the enya song sound very fitting. i'd have to look through my music too. there's so much of it i love, i wouldn't know where to start!

  5. thinking of you beautiful lady - great song choice and TFTD quote.. love x

  6. See I am the opposite with Enya as I walked down the aisle to Memory of the Trees. That being said, I can see how her haunting tunes fit the scene. Hope you had a wonderful date night Hun. Xxx

  7. Enya would be very soothing, but I must admit, I don't know that song. I only know 'Sail Away'.

    But she's very peaceful and tranquil, so I'd say a fitting choice, for sure!

Have the best day.
