‘Southern Harmonies’ in G, for organ and whistle [or smallpipes in D]


A medley of three 'Southern Harmony' folk hymns arranged in the key of G for organ and flute/whistle (or smallpipes with a D-chanter).


This is an arrangement of three ‘Southern Harmony’ shape-note hymns for organ and smallpipes (or low-whistle/flute). Two versions of the same arrangement are available: this one, in the key of G-Major for the low-D whistle or wooden flute (or D-chanter pipes); the other in the key of D-Major for Scottish smallpipes (standard A-chanter). The arrangement provides a delicate harmonic backing to the melodies while retaining the plaintive simplicity of the shape-note tradition. The three separate hymns may be performed individually or as a combined medley.  Difficulty level: Easy. (Approx. 2-and-a-half minutes in total length).  Audio sample below:
