Peter Clark Posted January 5, 2008 Share Posted January 5, 2008 Earlier today one of the assistant priests asked me to phone the daughter of a lady who died last week and is being buried on Friday. She went through the music requirements and then dropped the bombshell - she wants me to play "Daisy Daisy" as the coffin leaves church as her mother was a tap dancer and this was her party piece. I held my breath, swore violently but thakfully inaudibly. I said I would do what I could, making it clear that I felt this to be totally out of place in a church, but then learned that this had in fact been agreed by the officiating priest. You can imagine my thoughts! My parents, and later I, did not spend lots of money on my musical education so I could play "Daisy Daisy" at a funeral. The organ was not designed and built and paid for so that "Daisy Daisy" could propel someone, no mater how devout,into the presence of God. Advice please!
