Co-operative Funeralcare have released another survey of the most popular music chosen at funerals they conducted – although like the old ‘chart return’ shops for the Top 40, they only surveyed 250 of their 900 branches. Aside from the headlines about the dreadful ‘My Way’, the banning of ‘Imagine’ (quite right, too!) and ‘Abide With Me’ now being the most popular hymn, I just want to know this:
Who chose the clock from Countdown to be played at the committal?
We agree hate Imagine .I have wriiten down my choices. All my Days because it has Death defeated and one of my favourites .Also In Christ Alone with “No fear in Death “
That final verse of ‘In Christ Alone’ is very powerful at funerals.
