A great honour today, Bagpiping for the Funeral of a local Gentleman with Scots parentage, but who was a proud Welshman. The service took place at Holy Family Catholic Church in Fairwater Cardiff
As the cortege approached, I played “Sailing” with “Going Home”.  For the Church Entry: The requested “Land of My Fathers’.  The Communion: “Amazing Grace”.
The Departure: started with “The Rose”, then followed by “Calon Lan”, “Myfanwy” & “Cwm Rhondda”.
Then as the cortege departed for the crematorium, I played the Classical Piobaireachd “Queen Elizabeth II Salute”.
Our Condolences to the family and full church of friends.
Working once again with the very professional J. Pidgeon & Son LTD Funeral Directors of Cowbridge Road.
