THE HONOUR IS ALL MINE
In recent years, the sound of Bagpipes has become associated with funeral services. Perhaps it is the ancient, non-western scale of the instrument or the soulful and haunting sounds that it makes. But for whatever the reason,
many people want to have bagpipes played at a funeral service.
How many times have you seen coverage on the evening news of a funeral for a fireman or policeman who has given their life in the performance of their duties, you can usually hear a piper in the background playing Amazing Grace.
Being one of the most outstanding Sydney bagpipers may I suggest for a Funeral Service
Bagpipes can be played outside as mourners arrive.
Inside the Chapel or Church.
Play as the family enters.
Play as the casket is brought in.
At any point in the service, the piper could play a special hymn or tune on either kind of pipes.
The piper could be in the same room, or off in the distance (or outside) if preferred.
The pipes can be played as the casket is carried out of the chapel.
Bagpipes can be played as the funeral procession arrives, during the graveside service,
or after the service is over and friends and family are leaving.
The piper to be at a distance and out of sight when the tune is started.
Then move slowly move towards the graveside before the hymn is completed.
