How many requests have bereavement and music ministers received for "Danny Boy" to be sung at the close of a funeral liturgy? Steve Schaubel's simple arrangement provides a pastoral solution that couples the familiar Irish tune with a paraphrase of In Paradisum, "May choirs of angels lead you into paradise." A fitting accompaniment to the final procession of the funeral liturgy. Jeff Honoré provides an SATB version of Schaubel's piece for more advanced choirs.
