This is a well-done collection of standard bagpipe tunes by various civilian and military bands - what we generally think of when we think of bagpipe music. If you're into the pipes, this may be a good choice.

Or try Atmospheres: Scottish Celtic Bagpipes another nice collection that includes Amazing Grace, Danny Boy and Greensleeves

We'd personally recommend Piping Hot: Celtic Bagpipe Collection which has great bagpipe tunes from some of the best piping performers like the Tannahill Weavers, Jerry O'Sullivan, Seamus Ennis and more.
