- Graded Lessons, Lesson Level, Lessons, Level 2, Piobaireachd
As Queen of Scotland, England and Ireland from 1702 until her death in 1714, Queen Anne was monarch during one of the most significant events in the history of the British Isles, The Act of Union. This piobaireachd laments her passing. Technically it is a demanding piece, featuring the tricky cherede on High G throughout the ground and first variations. It also relies heavily on the odro grip movement throughout the first variation. The score for this lesson comes from The Piobaireachd Society Book 7.
