    I just had a request to play "Mother Beloved" for a funeral tomorrow. I can see it was popular back in the day but hadn't heard of it before. I found some references in the archives from years ago but the links are all defunct. Anyone know of a downloadable version anywhere? Happy to pay for it but need it by tomorrow (family understands it may not be possible but want to do my best).

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Check with forum member oldHymns, he has a recording on his website, so he'll have the music.

    Yes - I got that result initially and couldn't figure out how to actually download it. Now it's taken me through to "Bagaduce Music" and I can check it out for a dollar - it looks really sketchy though. Have you used them before? I'm a little nervous about giving them a credit card number.

  • Just got my first request for it too! This is probably my ~500th funeral and I'd never heard of it before.
