The Bagpipes of Christmas by The Monros (on Hoopla)

The Bagpipes of Christmas
by The Munros [Hoopla Digital Music] 

Looking for some ever so slightly different holiday music that’s still familiar? I’d suggest this album to you if you are. It’s just what the title says it is, bagpipe Christmas music, but there are also some Scottish melodies included such as Flower of Scotland, Highland Cathedral, Loch Lomond, and Wild Mountain Thyme. The Christmas songs are rather classic ones like Silent Night, Away in a Manger, The First Noel and Walking in the Air. I really enjoyed this album and think it has a somewhat wide appeal, although not everyone likes the bagpipes. This is available on Hoopla as a download or as streaming audio.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Winter’s Crossing, by James Galway (Compact Disc 781.62 IreYg), Scottish Tranquility, by Phil Coulter (Compact Disc 781.62 ScoC) or December, by George Winston (Compact Disc 781.65 Win).]
