The Green Hills Of Tyrol

The Green Hills Of Tyrol

They say the Highland Pipe is in the key of the human heart. Gateway Pundit links a BBC clip of the 3 Rifles and 1 Scots cruising the Royal Mile. The tune the band is playing in the clip is “The Green Hills Of Tyrol”. Now, the band no doubt played an awful lot more than that during the parade, but this selection is mildly ironic, since that march refers to a corner of Austria. The song “A Scottish Soldier” resolves the tension.

Here is a slightly cleaner recording of the march:

Bagpipes have got sack.
