Music for Comfort and Sadness ~

Music is a comfort when celebrating a Requiem Mass or Funeral Service for a loved one. Music can express the solemn or difficult feeling of loss, grief, sadness, relief or celebration that words can’t convey.

Ruth Mary’s harp playing offers beautiful and appropriate music for funerals or requiems. Gentle, unobtrusive and serene, the harp can give support at a sad and special time.
