A funeral in St Magnus Cathedral - SMC210
This is a funeral service taking place in St Magnus Cathedral. A funeral service takes place after the death of a person and concludes with their burial.
A funeral service is an act of both remembrance and mourning. Usually hymns will be sung and prayers spoken. Christian funerals have not always been services of mourning, before the eighth century they were occasions of joy.
St Magnus Cathedral is a popular venue for funeral services. This is especially true if the deceased is well known.
