Funeral Of An Archduke - Something Strange

Hat tip to Andrew Cusack for the YouTube videos he posted of the funeral of HIRH Archduke Karl-Ludwig, son of the Emperor Bl Charles of Austria.

One thing surprised me: I can understand why everybody would want the the old Imperial Anthem to be played; but I can't understand why they'd choose the Tantum Ergo as a hymn to be sung to that tune, especially as everybody standing up is exactly the opposite reaction that the words should produce.
