Four comments

Repeat signs (?)

This is a nice tune but in the 9th and tenth bars … should there be a repeat sign? As in - is the A section played twice, the the B twice?

Thanks

"Bishop Faber MacDonald’s Strathspey" ~ oh yeah, and another ripoff

This is another of those cut-and-paste jobs without crediting the source, the notator for the ABCs here is Paul Cranford of Cape Breton ~ http://www.cranfordpub.com

Not sure what you are on about 2situla, as the ABCs are OK, exactly as Paul notated them, 8 measures for the A-part and 8 measures for the B-part, a 16 bar tune:

Repeats

It would not surprise me if the there are no repeat signs. Many Cape Breton strathspeys (and some reels) don’t have repeats. An example is the Lime Hill strathspey (https://thesession.org/tunes/5767) among countless others.
