Kent Baker Music - Funeral Planning



Funeral Planning

Please use the form below to assist you in planning the funeral liturgy (audio files to most selections are hyperlinked). Other hymns and readings may be selected, subject to availability of music and approval. Non-religious songs are not permitted during the Mass - if you have a favorite pop song, etc., ask your funeral home about other opportunities to have it played (at the wake, gravesite, or reception).

To arrange a meeting in person or by telephone, please contact me at my office at (518) 792-0989 x113, on my cell phone at (802) 287-1066, or by e-mail kent@kentbakermusic.com.
