Christmas Greetings

I thought I would treat myself to a new concert pitch chanter, but it turned out a little shorter than usual. It has found a place on the Christmas tree. Have a Happy Christmas.



I had the opportunity to play this ancient tune or hymn yesterday in a church service. I read somewhere that it was written in Latin in the 12th century and the music added a century later, but further reading suggests it to be 15th century. It sounds nice on the pipes, no drones but with regs. The video below contains no bagpipes.
