Lesson Details

Duncan MacRae of Kintail’s Lament is an ancient piece of music that interestingly can be found in both Scottish and Irish traditions – in the Scottish, as this Lament, and in the Irish it is know as The March of the King of Laoise. In the piobaireachd – the score here is taken from the Kilberry Book of Ceol Mor - we have the common structure of theme (Ground) and variations, of which there are three. Technically this is not too challenging a piece, presenting the piper with grips, throw’s on D, cadences and dare/vedare movements.
