Secular music in church

evelyn @ 6:30 pm

Huh!  A few days after the previous post I found myself respectfully standing to attention beside the organ in an old and beautiful Church of Scotland as the coffin went out to a CD of one of the most inappropriate pieces of pop music I have ever heard.  Obviously, this music meant something to the bereaved, and comforted them, and that was good.  But, oh dear.

Forth in Praise has had one or two queries about funeral organist fees.  This can be a tricky subject, which the next post will look at.  The SFO website at www.scotsorgan.org.uk/sfo-04.htm gives a table of recommended fees, which is worth consulting.

In the meantime, I’m off for a few days to the other end of life.  I’m  going south to see my newly born grandson for the first time.
