The Piper's Companion 

Book 10 


The Piper's Companion 



The music in this collection is all on a winter theme and includes a handful of carols that were not included in The Christmas Companion. Many of the tunes have alternative titles so fit with other times of the year.

If you have any connection with a choir, you might be interested in seeing a carol that includes a part for Northumbrian pipes

There is now a treble recorder version of The Humours of Winter. This is printed in the style of an insert to the main book and is priced at £6.00. Please email if interested.
