The protocol of the ceremony related to the performance of the choir at the cemeteries in Zagreb
The protocol of the ceremony related to the performance of the choir at the cemeteries in Zagreb predicts the singing of the first song during the transfer of the deceased from the morgue into the hearse, the second song before the funeral procession and the third one at the grave during the lowering of the casket with the deceased into the grave. We suggest that you also opt for the fourth song that would be sung at the end and would therefore complete the funeral ceremony.
In case the farewell includes the honours, a speech or an additional song, it is necessary to align the number of songs with the limited duration of the ceremony.
In order to have a perfect funeral, every detail must be anticipated in line with the protocol since the ceremony of the funeral does not allow for improvisation. All deviations and changes therefore need to be agreed with the master of the funeral ceremony before the ceremony initiates.
At the other cemeteries, music services are adapted to local and religious customs and are specially arranged.
