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 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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oieFS785QPk...feature=related

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. Slainte, Blackdog
