- Graded Lessons, Lesson Level, Lessons, Level 1, Piobaireachd
Next in Glenn Brown’s series on piobaireachd featuring High G is the beautiful Rory MacLeod’s Lament. For a tune that is now quite widely considered to be of the highest calibre, it is a relatively recent discovery, only seeing the light of day after being transcribed by Archie Kenneth from the Campbell Canntaireachd for publication in the Piobaireachd Society Book 11 in 1966.
