Typically, during a vigil, I will work in 2-3 hour shifts one or more times a day, until the dying person gets close to the end. Then I will spend a larger block of time, perhaps 5-8 hours—possibly more—to provide presence through the death and into the time immediately afterwards when people are dealing with intense emotions.
The haunting sound of the small bagpipe is quieter and less invasive than that of the Great Highland pipes (typically in a high pitched B) Small pipes are tuned in the key of D. I will come play quietly for you or a loved one in their home. Tunes can range from Mist Covered Mountains, to self composed pieces. Currently I can not offer this at hospitals or other similar facilities.
