                                                 A special tribute for a loved one

There are several times during a funeral service where it is appropriate to honor a loved one's memory with the majestic sound of the bagpipe.

At a funeral, a piper may play:

  • As the casket is carried into the church
  • As the casket is carried out of the church
  • As the casket is carried to the burial site
  • At the end of the interment service... a slow air is played as the piper walks into the distance


At a memorial a piper may:

  • Pipe the processional or prelude
  • Play as part of the service
  • Pipe the recessional or postlude


Tunes I'm often requested to play at a funeral:

  • O For a Closer Walk with God
  • Amazing Grace
  • Mansions of the Lord  (President Reagan's funeral)
  • Mist Covered Mountains  (President Kennedy's funeral)
