A smallpipe composition, but completely playable on the Highland pipes.

Composed as a wedding present. The story behind this tune is someone who chanced upon someone playing the pipes in a lovely old square somewhere in Tuscanny, Italy. Not really a Scottish style of melody, but I love it on the smallpipes, or big.

Watch the combinations of 8th, 16th & 32nd notes. Might take some fluid, clean fingering to get the "ripple" effect. If any of you play Hamish Moore smallpipes, then this is for you!
