MacCrimmon Piobaireachd - the great compositions
Download a complete tune played in full on the practice chanter by ceol mor expert Robert Wallace. By using circular breathing he is able to demonstrate the linking of lines, variations and phrases so vital to good piobaireachd delivery. These tunes are all associated with the great MacCrimmon family, hereditary pipers to MacLeod of Dunvegan. Most are suitable for the piping competitions at the Skye Gathering such as the Dunvegan Medal and Clasp. Recordings may sometimes vary slightly from the printed score taking into account, as they must, traditional teaching and a preference for different settings usually well documented in the Piobaireachd Society collection. There is no assertion that this is the only way to play these tunes.
