In churches times past you looked through their hymn book to pick songs for s funeral. The choices of music was by heavy slow organ music or light hearted piano music. If it was a busy church sometimes they would have their own band.
These modern times in most churches they have cd players to take your own cd. or MP3 players projectors to put the words on the screen for all to sing along to. Some also have laptops tv screens for the people to follow along to the words of each hymn or songs. check with your local funeral director to see what the church can offer you.
if you have a cremation service at your local crematorium. You'll find you are given a short time slot. This is usually a busy place so you wont have the same full service with many hymns like in churches. approximate 20 30 or 40min sessions. you could chose one hymn and play some music as people enter in and leave the crematorium.
