A very good friend's mom died last week. She has asked me to find a good bagpipe tune for her funeral, aside from Amazing Grace. While I have listened to Highlander Radio for some time, I have not kept up with appropriate funeral music. Can you help out a fellow Scot?

I like "Sargent Mackenzie" although it is modern and written by Joe Mackenzie of
"Clan an drumma" it feels very old and traditional and dirges very well.

i have started playing an arrangement of it on my Hurdy Gurdy... people get misty. note.gif

my condolences to your friend on her loss. sad.gif

Auld Lang Sang by Robert Burns. Can you play "God be with you until we meet again" on pipes?

I always wanted Highland Cathedral when they carry my arse out of the church. Sure its mostly played at weddings and it was written by a couple of Germans but what the hey I'm half German. Finns Fury does a good version and so far its my favorite version. Celtic Bolero by the Red Hot Chili Pipers is also very similar to Highland Cathedral.
Here's a video of it. You'll probably reconize it after the first few notes.

I've used both Dark Isle and Going Home as Camac advised, have also found Lord Lovat's Lament played in slow time a good one, or Loch Rannoch. If there is any military connection, then Flowers of the Forest is appropriate.
