After losing my Dad, we chose this to be played during the committal, however after fantastic advice from a friend who was to officiate, we actually had the coffin taken into the crematorium to this music. As our lady vicar said, it is a solemn occasion and this is solemn music, but at the end of the committal you really want to celebrate a life well lived, so we left to one of Dad's favourites, Moonlight Serenade. Nimrod will always bring tears to my eyes henceforth, but then it often did anyway, as it is such a wonderful piece. My experience just adds another aspect to a many-faceted work.

I agree this is a superb interpretation on this classic, under the baton of one of the UK's great conductors.
But the review about Cloud Player above is inaccurate. You can download music from your Cloud Player to a laptop, phone, anything. So it should be fine regardless of how you want to use the music. I find it great because I have all my music on my phone and ipad without using up all the space, but I can download whatever I want on the device itself.
