Blest Are Those Who Mourn is more than just a collection of the finest and most appropriate music for funeral liturgies. It is also a pastorally oriented planning tool that allows the bereaved to choose music for the funeral liturgy during this most difficult, confusing, and painful moment in life.

Blest Are Those Who Mourn conveniently gathers all the music you need into one place. It contains nearly 100 hymns, psalms, and songs in a variety of styles, representing the full breadth of new funeral repertoire composed since the original publication. This expanded edition uses the Revised Order of Mass and offers multiple Mass settings, including the bilingual acclamations from Tony Alonso’s adaptation of the Mass of Creation. In addition, more psalmody, bilingual and culturally diverse music, and more music for the vigil service and committal have been added. Structured like all of GIA’s high-quality hymnals, this resource provides a wealth of music choices for the entire Order of Christian Funerals.

Blest Are Those Who Mourn has everything you’ve come to expect from a trusted source of hymnals and sacred music.
