    Can anybody tell me if there's an arrangement of Amazing Grace you can buy for Brass Band and Bagpipes. I'm getting married in 7 weeks and want to try and get hold of an arrangement (if one exists)?!

    Cheers

    Why would anyone want Agony Bags on their happy day?

    But if you really insist, and you can't find anything specifically done for band and bags, any arrangement in the key of Eb (concert pitch) should do the trick - it's the only key they can play in.

    PM me if you can't find anything.

    Just Music lists one for bagpipe solo and band, but there's no details re arranger etc - may be worth giving them a ring.

    AFAIK, pipes are Bb.

    You need:-

    1) An arrangement where melody is concert Bb throughout

    2) A piper who knows the tune. (if s/he's over 6 y.o., sorted...)
