Remembrance Service Music | Chicago Harp Player

The holidays are not always joyful.  For those who have lost a loved one, especially recently, the season can bring sorrow and pain.  The Diocese of Joliet held a service for these families at the Resurrection Cemetery Chapel in Romeoville, Illinois.

Christmas Remembrance Service Music

I was honored to play the harp for the service, and to bring a bit of beauty to the holidays for them.  As people gathered and filled the pews, I played traditional Christmas carols.  The final piece of the prelude was “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.”

Chicago Harp Music for Christmas

During the service, I played “Amazing Grace” and “Silent Night” as harp solos.  As names were read and family members placed an ornament on the Christmas trees, I played “Angels We Have Heard on High” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” lightly in the background.  The service concluded with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
