Beechwood Funeral Music in the Sacred Space

French Italian Latin Music Beechwood

Beechwood Funeral Music in the Sacred Space at the National Cemetery for a lovely Francophone family. They chose songs in French, Italian and Latin. All such beautiful song choices as you will see from the song list below.

A few of the songs were new to me and I appreciated adding the new material to my repertoire. Of note, was Pie Jesu. I had sung Pie Jesu with choirs in my youth many times, but this was actually my first time singing it solo. Surprising that no one had requested it earlier. What a beautiful song it is.
