Does anyone know the instrument that is used a lot throughout the original Titanic soundtrack that sounds like bagpipes? I really like the sound of it during the piece "Hymn To The Sea" where it is used the most.
Thanks

I could be wrong about what they're called, but they're are Irish bagpipes (not Scottish ones).

The pipes may seem "other-worldly" to some ears simply because they are layered with a flute/recorder (probably synthetic) that plays note-for-note with them (on most tracks).
This is very noticeable in headphones.

BTW- I picked this up again last week because of the long review.
I just don't get it- to me, it's a frigging Frisbee.
