Final music
Gabriel Fauré (1845–1924)—Berceuse from Dolly Suite Op. 56 no.1

Music by Fauré, so important to Glynnis, dominates the service. At the end, the Berceuse in Alfred Cortot's solo piano arrangement was a piece Glynnis like to play daily. And how appropraite for Glynnis and Sandy to discover that Fauré originally wrote the piece (30 years before the rest of the Suite) with the title 'La Chanson dans le jardin' (The Song in the garden)!
