Dr Angus MacDonald composed Chloe’s Passion after an alleged encounter with a painting of a lady in Australia.

Thank you so much!!!

The tune is what I’ve been trying to learn by ear in vain.

I fisrt heard this slip jig played on Deaf Shepherd’s album, but it was not until listening to Clare Mann’s flute playing that I fell in love with the tune.

What a cool pipe tune!

Cadence

Neat sounding tune - what speed is this normally played at - and does it have a lot of syncopation?

Chloe’s passion

Great version of this on "Return To Kintail" by Alasdair Fraser & Tony McManus. A lot of other good Scottish session "standards" on that CD as well.

Changed the f# to a g in bars 1 and 3. The version a friend gave me was incorrect.

This isn’t “The Kitchen Maid”

It seems Lunasa recorded this great tune under a wrong title. A traditional Scots pipe tune "The Kitchen Maid" is actually this one: https://thesession.org/tunes/4140

“Chloe’s Passion” ~ a rescued duplication, 2 parts of 4, 2 keys

"Gan Ainm"
Key signature: a minor

Oh My Goodness! Sorry everybody, I had it transcribed to a different key, which is why I didn’t find it anywhere on here. And I also thought this was two different tunes. I’m VERY sorry!

That is, the way Lunasa plays it. Probably because the pipes start out with the first two phrases and then all the other instruments came in and played the whole tune. It threw me off a little.

It is Chloe’s Passion, I just thought it was two different tunes by how Lunasa did it on their CD Kinnitty Sessions. It’s the first two phrases of Chloe’s Passion done the way Lunasa does it. They start it off with Uilleann Pipes after another Jig, and it sounds amazing.

Nice transcription Joseph, here’s hoping you will finish the transcriptions by adding your take on the other two parts later, in the two keys you’ve given… ‘c’

Chloe’s Passion

Surely this is E dorian not B minor?

Chloe’s Passion

It is interesting that Lunasa got the title wrong calling it The Kitchen Maid rather than Chloe’s Passion seeing as on Claire Mann’s album she played Chloe’s Passion followed by The Kitchen Maid.

I wonder what their source was, the lazy toerags! :-)

This is how I’m playing it.

Typo in the last part, last note of the third bar last part should be "g" not an f#;

Re: Chloe’s Passion

Here’s Chloe: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlo%C3%A9_(artwork)

The model for this painting was named Marie, not Chloé. She was born to a poor family in 1856, and was of Persian descent. She left home at a young age and started posing for artists in order to gain some income for herself and her sister. She was 19 when Lefebvre painted her for Chloé.
