Hello Ann, as far as I know, "der Bordun" means the lowest tone of a number of sounds, e.g. the bell with the lowest tone in a cathedral. As such, there should be only one singular form of the word. Theoretically, the plural form would be "die Bordunen", and if this makes sense depends of course on what you want to say, e.g. talking about them generally speaking. If you talk about "Bordunpfeifen", a single one is a "Bordunpfeife", and plural form is "Bordunpfeifen". I hope this is about what you wanted to know!
