One comment


Messing around with tunes in Donald MacLeod’s Collection of Music for the Bagpipe Book 6, again, and I’m a little smitten with this tune.

Donal MacLeod penned the 3rd & 4th parts, the first two parts I assume are perhaps a traditional 2 part tune that he’s added too, as their not credited.

Here’s the unadulterated dots:

I prefer them adulterated myself………
