Funeral Music

Music is often intrinsic to any celebration, and funerals are no exception. Today, songs from right across the musical spectrum are heard at funerals - everything from Beethoven to the Beatles and Metallica to Mozart. 

Recognising the importance of music at funerals and life celebrations, Tobin Brothers has developed an extensive Recorded Music Library of more than 2,000 titles to help families choose that special song, hymn or piece of music for the service.

Please click on ENTIRE MUSIC CATALOGUE to view our extensive music library. 

Should you require us to supply a copy of your selected music for the day of the funeral then please speak with our Funeral Advice Line staff on (03) 9373 7000. You will need to provide us with the name of the artist and the title of the song.

To assist you with your choice of music at the bottom of this section we have placed 10 of the most popular funeral songs which are 30 seconds in duration. Simply click on the links to listen to the individual pieces of music.

Of course, if you would prefer to have live music played by a band, vocalist, piper, bugler, pianist, organist, or string quartet, we are happy to organise this also.
