I once read someone online say that the Germans could hear the Highlanders going over the top at Alamein above the artillery fire from the piping and it was darned scary. That's actually a romantic thought in a grisly sort of way, perhaps to romantic to be taken without a grain of salt. But the idea of enchanted bagpipes reminded me of it. It's really kind of a preternatural extension of that after all.
