Here is a compilation of replies I received for anthems appropriate for
funeral services. *Thanks* to all who replied.

Madrigal Vol 2, T. Dart. Also in Fellowes, Lutenist School, Campion volume.
(This worked *beautifully* at the service I conducted at last week.)

in The New Church Anthem Book, Oxford.

I found another page as soon as I logged off! Stan Baker suggests several
settings of "I am the resurrection and the life" from the funeral
Dressler (Concordia), Scheidt, Milton, Morley and Vulpius
And of course there are the Purcell Funeral Sentences (Queen Mary): Man
that is born of women... In the midst of life... Thou knowest, Lord, the
secrets. Purcell has two settings of the last (3?). There's a setting
of Man that is born in Honegger's King David that could be excerpted.
And isn't there an Ode on the Death of John Blow, or do I have that
