Lesson Details

The Piper’s Warning to His Master (or A Cholla mo Ruin, as it’s called in Donald MacDonald’s second collection) is an important piece in the history of pipe music, given its echoes in the gaelic song tradition. In this lesson Roddy MacLeod takes us through the Donald MacDonald setting of this evocative tune – a score that in many ways expresses the wider musical context from which it comes more clearly than the ‘standard’ scores. You can view the orignal handwritten manuscript on the Piobaireachd Society website.
