Galicia is one of the most important and unknown parts of the world. Galicia are in the north-west part of Spain, and a lot of his tradicionally music has been conserved. I recomend to play this tune with the fiddle , but is better to play whit the “Galician pipes” ! The sound of the Galician Pipes is more sharp if we compare with the scotish bagpipes, that are more low.

Very nice, but this undescores the discussion we’re having on “Celtic” music. Even i can tell this is not Irish. It does remind me a lot of an album i have by Kepa Junqueira, Basque music.

I’m not slamming you for posting this. It’s a nice tune.

Keko, this is very interesting! You say that you can use the same ornamentation as Irish or Scottish – how does a Galician ornament a tune? And the Galician Pipes – are they similar to uilleann pipes? Do they have registers, or are they like the bagpipes with their drones? I’m looking forward to trying this tune out on our piper…!


This tune, being in D-minor and modulating at one point to D-major, would certainly not be ideal for the uillean pipes (although there are bound to be a few players out there who could tackle it). The melodic-type minor scale (with a sharpened 7th) is one thing which sets this tune apart from any traditional Irish tune.

Accessing the sheet music

I can’t actually access the sheet music to this tune. Is anyone else having the same problem? Could it be fixed please Jeremy if there is a problem?

Thanks, GK

Glad to see that somebody else has picked up on the music from the “Celtic” parts of Northern Spain.
My own two favourite bands playing this music are “LLAN DE CUBEL” who have a “Bothy Band”-style line up of instruments, and a new young band called “TEJEDOR” who feature Asturian pipes,whistles and accordion. Both groups also have excellent singers, and I would recommend them both to anyone with an interest in the more predominant celtic music of Ireland and Scotland.

Battlefield Band

This is pretty much the same tumne that the Battlefield band recorded in the disr=ant past when brian McNeil was stil playing with them. I think they called “Muniera sul sacrato della chiesa”
