Tom Zajac, a member of the Piffaro group who played recorder, bagpipe, sackbut, pipe & tabor, flute and percussion, died in August of brain cancer.

This week, the pipes came out for his memorial service through the streets of New York City from St. John’s Cathedral to a nearby bar. Many early music eminences took part in the parade.
