Inspired by themes of cultural diversity, Lois Cordelia’s design for Eleven Pipers Piping celebrates pipe instruments from all over the world. There are well known and obscure instruments, historic and contemporary ones, played by male, female, old and young musicians. Woven in amongst the pipers are excerpts of pipe music: Auld Lang Syne, Flight of the Condor, and J. S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.
