Funeral Music

 

It can be hard to pick out music for a funeral. So, I hope that this page makes the process easier for you. If you need anything, please contact me at music@st-henrys.org or 218-346-7030. In the meantime, here are a few notes about this page.

 

God Bless,

Michael Mettler

Director of Music and Liturgy

 

  • If you are preplanning a funeral, you can submit the list to me so I can put it in my files.

  • Below is the approved list of funeral music for here at St. Henry's.

  • This list is not exhaustive. If you have a song you would like to do that is not on this list, we can approve or deny its use in a timely manner if you send us the title of the piece.

  • You can click on any of the underlined titles to open a YouTube video of that song.

  • Keep in mind that our musicians may not be able to replicate the content of these videos.

  • Also keep in mind that these videos are for purely informational purposes.

  • The numbers are for Journeysongs Third Edition.
