Funeral sound reinforcement.

Every so often I get asked to provide a sound system for smaller churches where funerals are being held and the mourners outnumber the pews, this occurred today, about 50 people joined in the passing of their dear friend from a marquee in the grounds of the lovely old Copgrove St Michael and All Angels Church, I had been told to expect several readings, a duet singing along to the beautiful old organ and the eulogy to be read by the Minister. I had placed 4 radio mics in strategic places, 2 speakers outside the church and 2 outside the marquee entrance, the speech was all very intelligible, but then came a hymn, I wasnt really expecting it but the whole marquee erupted into song, fortunately there was enough headroom on the organ for them all to hear and keep in time, it was very moving and I did feel I had experienced and helped enable something very special!
