A return visit to Newport Langstone vale Crematorium today, Bagpiping for the Funeral of an Edinburgh born lady with Scots Guards family connections.

 
My brief was to maintain a Scots music theme.  Therefore, on the approach of the Funeral Cars, I led to the chapel with “The Mull of Kintyre”, along with, “The Skye Boat Song”.
 
For the Chapel Entry, the tune of choice was “Amazing Grace”.  In addition, for the Committal, I played the beautiful & appropriate Slow Air – “Sleep, Dearie Sleep”
 
Thereafter, as mourners departed the chapel, I played the family requested “Flower of Scotland”.  This was accompanied by the Piobaireachd Salute: “Queen Elizabeth II Salute”.
 
Our Condolences to the family & very close friends.
