Original Piobaireachds



 

Transcriptions of John Grant’s Original Piobaireachds

  • John Grant’s way of writing piobaireachd in staff notation harkens back to the method of Angus MacKay.  In order to facilitate reading for modern pipers I have up-dated his notation, staying as true to his intent as possible.  If you, the reader, find any mistakes or believe there is a better way to notate anything, please do not hesitate to write me.  The first six tunes below are from The Royal Collection of Piobaireachd, 1st edition.  The next 15 were added for the 2nd edition.  The remainder were never published.
