Yeah, I have a lovely CD called "A Bohemian Christmas" with chant and medieval folk music from Poland and the Czech region. There are at least a couple songs that use bagpipes.  We listen to it while decorating the Christmas tree!

There's no Gospel evidence that you're posting here either. But you are.

"In Italian presepi, you will also invariably find a shepherd-bagpiper, or "zampognaro." The zampognari figures are based on the Italian tradition of the Italian shepherds' (especially of Abruzzi and Lazio) coming down from the mountains at Christmastime, going door-to-door to play bagpipes to announce the birth of Christ. This tradition continues today, and is so beloved that the zampognaro appears in Italian presepi, sometimes accompanied by the pifferai (flute players) that often accompany the pipers in real life."

Well, I'll eat my words!

I doubt it.  The kid is wearing plaid after all.  :LOL:

This is cool.

And here is an Arab Catholic scout pipe and drum band in Jerusalem playing Scotland the Brave (starting at 23 seconds into the video).  It was uploaded on Dec 20, 2007 so I imagine it was just before Christmas.

No, he never said that at all.

Last I checked, the Catholic Church is not a Church of Sola Scriptura.

Hmmph, sounds anti-Scottish to me.

Not only that, but the OLD Testament supports it.

The FSSP in Sacramento featured bagpipes in their procession:



The Sacramento FSSP has also held regular workshops for bagpipe playing at their parish. Bagpipes are awesome!  :grin:
