Piobaireachd Society’s Competitions, 1913

48 India Street, Edinburgh, 1 March, 1913

Sir,–as your piping readers perhaps have noticed, the official list of piobaireachd selected by the Piobaireachd Society for their competitions in 1913 was printed in your issue of February 8th . In succeeding issues an advertisement of Mr. David Glen’s settings of these tunes has appeared under the heading, “The Piobaireachd Society.” It has been brought to the notice of the Music Committee of the Piobaireachd Society that intending competitors have understood from the headline of this advertisement that Mr. Glen’s settings have been especially recommended by the committee. I have been instructed by the Committee to deny this, and to state that the Committee are desirous that competitors in the 1913 competitions shall have complete freedom in their choice of settings of the tunes which they offer.–I am, etc.,

J. P. Grant,

Honorary Secretary, Music Committee,

Piobaireachd Society
