The Northumbrian smallpipes (also known as the Northumbrian pipes) are bellows-blown bagpipes from North East England, where they have been an important factor in the local musical culture for more than 200 years. The family of the Duke of Northumberland have had an official piper for over 250 years, and in more recent times the Mayor of Gateshead and the Lord Mayor of Newcastle have both re-established the tradition by appointing official Northumbrian pipers.

  • Northumbrian smallpipes est un instrument de musique anglais de la famille des cornemuses. Appelée couramment small pipe ou Northumbrian pipes, la cornemuse du comté de Northumberland est un instrument à réserve d'air alimenté non pas par le souffle du musicien mais à l'aide d'un soufflet placé sous le bras. C'est la seule cornemuse anglaise qui a traversé le temps de manière continue. (fr)
  • La cornamusa del Northumberland (in inglese Northumbrian smallpipes o Northumbrian pipes) è uno strumento musicale britannico, appartenente alla famiglia delle cornamuse, originario del Northumberland, nel Nord Est dell'Inghilterra. Si tratta di un aerofono atipico, in quanto alimentato da un soffietto sotto il braccio e non dal soffio della bocca del musicista. Si tratta dell'unica cornamusa inglese che ha trasceso il tempo e continua a essere utilizzata ai giorni nostri. (it)
  • The Northumbrian smallpipes (also known as the Northumbrian pipes) are bellows-blown bagpipes from North East England, where they have been an important factor in the local musical culture for more than 200 years. The family of the Duke of Northumberland have had an official piper for over 250 years, and in more recent times the Mayor of Gateshead and the Lord Mayor of Newcastle have both re-established the tradition by appointing official Northumbrian pipers. In a survey of the bagpipes in the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford University, the organologist Anthony Baines wrote: "It is perhaps the most civilized of the bagpipes, making no attempt to go further than the traditional bagpipe music of melody over drone, but refining this music to the last degree." The instrument consists of one chanter (generally with keys) and usually four drones.The cylindrically-bored chanter has a number of metal keys, most commonly seven, but chanters with a range of over two octaves can be made which require seventeen or more keys, all played with either the right hand thumb or left little finger. There is no overblowing employed to get this two octave range, so the keys are therefore necessary, together with the length of the chanter, for obtaining the two octaves. The Northumbrian smallpipes' chanter having a completely closed end, combined with the unusually tight fingering style (each note is played by lifting only one finger or opening one key) means that traditional Northumbrian piping is staccato in style. Because the bores are so narrow, (typically about 4.3 millimetres for the chanter), the sound is far quieter than most other bagpipes. A detailed account of the construction of Northumbrian smallpipes written by William Alfred Cocks and Jim F. Bryanwas published in 1967 by the Northumbrian Pipers' Society; it was very influential in promoting a revival of pipemaking from that time. This is now out of print, however. Another description, by Mike Nelson, is currently available. Nelson's designs also include the "School Pipes", G-sets with plastic components, made to be used in schools in Northumberland. These two accounts differ rather in their objectives, as Cocks and Bryan was based on descriptions of existing sets, notably by Robert Reid, Nelson being a description of his own design. (en)
  • The Northumbrian smallpipes (ook bekend als de Northumbrian pipes) zijn door de ellebogen aangeblazen doedelzakken uit het noordoosten van Engeland, bijvoorbeeld in Northumberland en noordelijk Durham. Zij hebben dezelfde eigenschappen als de Ierse uilleann pipes maar hebben een rondere toon en worden ook door de bespeler op de knie geplaatst. De vroegste doedelzakcomposities uit Northumberland zijn gevonden in manuscript uit 1730. (nl)
  • A Smallpipe nortumbriana é uma gaita-de-fole pequena de Northumberland no norte da Grã-Bretanha. Essa gaita é a única gaita inglês que tem uma tradição ininterrupto, a partir de sua invenção até hoje. A smallpipe nortumbriana tem digitação particular e uma cantadeira fechada que permite um efeito stacatto. A cantadeira utiliza a palheta dupla. Possui uma cantadeira (ponteiro) cilíndrica, tradicionalmente afinada entre fa e fa# (F e F#). A cantadeira moderna tem várias chaves (desde 7 até 17 chaves), que o permite atinger duas oitavas cromáticas. Opera com cauld-wind ("ar-frio"); isto é, com similar ao da uilleann pipes e ao da . Os bordões, geralmente quatro, são dispostos em soquete (buxa) comum. Normalmente, se utilizam três bordões num momento, utilizando a quarta para cambiar afinação. Normalmente os três se utilizam para soar o tonico, dominante, e tonico do octave. (pt)
