Ann Marie Powderly Wedding Singer & Guitarist

   Music for your loved one's Requiem Mass

    In Annie's capacity as a professional singer and guitarist, she has sang at many funerals over the past two decades. Annie understands that this is a very difficult time for the family. She can empathise with each family and support them in choosing the most appropriate music to give their loved ones the best send off possible. Having sung at her own parents requiem masses, she understands the importance of having music that will reflect the individuals life. Music for the requiem mass should tie in with the Liturgy and hymns are the best choice throughout the ceremony unless otherwise agreed with the officiating Priest. Where possible, Annie will call out to the family and help them to plan the music around the various chosen readings and prayers.

In essence, this is a celebration of your loved ones life.
