They braved the cold, windy weather to play the iconic hymn while maintaining social distancing. A small, appreciative crowd gathered to witness the performance, with some watching from across the street, and others listening from their vehicles. 

The performance was part of a global initiative to show solidarity in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. People have been playing the hymn on the bagpipes at noon at sites around the world.
