Puirt-a-Beul

A very nice Highland pipe 2-part Strathspey. The title is a non-title, just meaning "tunes of the mouth".

Re: Puirt-a-Beul

I think Quadriga Consort plays this tune. I agree, great tune.

Re: Puirt-a-Beul

‘Puirt a beul’, yes, it literally says ‘tunes of the mouth’, but what it means is what is called ‘diddling’ in Scotland or ‘lilting’ in Ireland. Usually we translate it as ‘mouth music’ .
