12. BRETON DANCERS

An up-tempo theme played on Breton biniou bagpipes and tambour drum.  Historical opinion is that the biniou kozh, which is a one-drone bagpipe, was adapted from the veuze bagpipe, both of which are native to Brittany and are used as an accompaniment to the bombarde, which is a primitive small oboe-like shawn, being a mediaeval double reed wind instrument with a sharp penetrating tone, widely used in Breton music which is native to Brittany

17. BRETON LEGENDS

A free tempo, ethereal, mystical, haunting opening section played on a solo drone pipe and tambour for 1’19, leading to an up-tempo rhythmic section played on Breton pipes, tambour and hurdy-gurdy to the end of the theme.  The hurdy-gurdy is an ancient stringed instrument closely associated with France, producing a sound that is partially similar to the bagpipe
