    Music for funerals does not have to purely be solemn or religious in nature. Instead, it should also in some way reflect the character of the individual that has passed away or, in the example of music for funeral slideshows, something that is peaceful and capable of providing a fitting tribute to the deceased alongside those images that mean so much to the people in attendance.

    Here at Melody Loops, we supply royalty free mp3 wav files composed by our team that can be used for any funeral service. Indeed, we even understand that when it comes to music for funerals non religious tunes can be difficult to come by, but not with the background files that we can offer you. This makes our songs perfect for any setting no matter the personal belief of the deceased or those at the funeral making your life less stressful in the process.

    What we have are a wide selection of songs that are capable of stirring up various emotions throughout the service. Our songs can be used for different aspects of the funeral no matter if it is with a slideshow or even just when people are entering or leaving providing a welcome distraction to the matters at hand.

    Music that has been composed for funerals should be able to touch people in various ways depending on their memories of the individual. It should reflect the mood and it should also be seen as part of the healing process by providing a certain warmth to the service by being beautifully composed.

    That is exactly what we have to offer at Melody Loops allowing you to carefully plan the entire funeral service giving the individual a fitting send-off as they go on their final journey surrounded by those that knew them and loved them.
