EWTN Catholic Q&A
Funeral music
Question from Andrew on 02-08-2013:

Mrs Brown this topic is out of your forum, but I would like your opinion. Does one have to have music at their Catholic funeral? Thank you very much.

Answer by Judie Brown on 02-11-2013:

I don't believe so. I have attended very private Catholic funeral where there was no music. I would check with the local pastor, however.
