    Along those lines, I have read that many years ago, in small and poor chapels and churches in Ireland that could not afford an organ that sometimes they would hire an uilleann piper to play for the services. I think I remember seeing a picture of an old set of uilleann pipes that had a full set of regulators but no drones. There was only the chanter and regulators. It was said that this set of pipes was used to play in a church.

    While a good set of uilleann pipes is not cheap, it is WELL below the price of even a modest organ.

    In the Mormon hymn book it is called "If you could Hie to Kolob" They also call the tune "Dives and Lazarus"

    I apologize to Richard for the diversion although this tune "Star of the County Down" is definitely used as the melody for a hymn. After further questioning and a little searching Voices hymnary No. 625 " I Feel the Winds of God Today". Thank you to those who assisted me . I'll try to keep my questions in check henceforth.
    Piping Is Life!....The rest doesn't matter.
