The Cops in Kilts of the Chicago Police Emerald Society cite a description of the bagpipes given in 1581 by Galileo's father:
"The Bagpipe is much used by the Irish. To its sounds, this unconquered, fierce, and warlike people march their armies, and are encouraged to feats of valor. With it they also carry their dead to the grave, making such a mournful sound, as to force the bystander to weep."
Particularly recommended from the Chicago police pipe band's mp3 page are the Quiet Man and the Garryowen sets.
