Old, old tunes
There’s a particular Scottish march I like called "MacDonald of the Isles’ March to the Battle of Harlaw". I have a book with the dots that says the tune commemorates the battle of Harlaw in 1411, but that the tune was probably composed "some time after the battle". Does anyone know approximately how old this tune is? Also are there other tunes that are very old? I know that much of what we play is from the last 300 years or so. What of music before that?
