Re: Ballad for a Deceased Person
Irish Tune - Grainger is one of my go to songs personally when tragedy strikes. I fell in love with music and its connection to emotions in large part to that piece as a high school student. We had traveled to Florida for a festival and were performing it with our HS Wind Ensemble. While we were in warm-up our director told us he had found out that night that his grandfather had passed away unexpectedly and asked us to perform it in his memory. One of my favorite performances of all time. The whole of the text is very fitting to your purpose.
Any of the suggestions below would work well though. Condolences on your loss.
