11 For Armagh 0:38 min
Following an invitation to attend the Armagh Pipers Festival in November 2005, Ancient Music Ireland brought a number of Irish horns to exhibit and conduct experimental playing with the pipers from Irish and International musical traditions. A particularly interesting collaboration was that of an adharc being played with a set of Sardinian triple pipes. Both instruments have their origins in the Bronze Age and both employ circular breathing. We also know that triple pipes were played in Ireland and Britain during the Early Medieval Period – at least until the 10th Century AD. Many thanks to Barnaby Brown for allowing us to include this tune in the album.
