The High Level was a relatively obscure 2-parted hornpipe until the famous PM Angus MacDonald added a 3rd and 4th part and included it the Scots Guards Collection Vol 2, after which it became a popular tune in both competition and recitals.
Throughout the 20th century the practice of adding 3rd and 4th parts to older tunes was quite common. Often this would be done to make tunes fit into the competition format. In this series of lesson Margaret Dunn takes us through some such tunes.
