Never the Twain Shall Meet

Two musical instruments I dearly love: the pipe organ and the bagpipes.

Two musical instruments I heard played together today: the pipe organ and the bagpipes.

Oh. My. God.

The twain met today in the sanctuary of the church where I work. I hope they never meet again - at least not within my earshot.

It was fairly brutal.

I wince just reading about the combination...Can't imagine them being in tune together at all!

Dear Husband assures me that there is music written specifically for organ and bagpipes (and I was the music major in college and didn't know this!).

I'm going to see if I can find an audio file online ...
