Iain Morrison of Cumbernauld - 2/4 Competition March

Composed for Iain Morrison originally of Cumbernauld, but a long-time resident of the Sheltland Islands, and sometimes pipe-major of the Lerwick British Legion Pipe Band. A great lover of music in all kinds and shapes, and an encouragement to me. -David. only the BMW Gold file uploaded I see--will t...

The Fingerstorm

The era of the eight-parted jig is here to stay. Get a hold of some Irish cloggers and have some great fun with this jig.

Sounds great on the pipe chanter scale--the lower pitch midi sound hides the strength of the notes a bit. This would be great in an Irish set. Nice piece of music!

A nice, driving hornreel indeed (could be reel or hornpipe--these days who can tell them apart stylistically?). Gives a lot of power without asking too much of the fingers. Good job--and not just for a second tune. Don't forget to compose a few pointed marches, and some light, highly melodic airs in...

P/M Julius Collins (Pipes, Wurlitzer & Fiddle)

Composed for the birthday of a gentleman nearing ninety years of age, who began piping in Glasgow in the mid-1930s. This setting was done with Sibelius, and uses harmony designed for non-piping accompaniment. web access with audio at: http://www.geocities.com/israelpiper/julius_collins.html

I think he'll have his website up and tunning soon--but meanwhile, this site (same as the one I listed above) has other photos of his work and contact information.

Tim Gellaitry Highland Pipes - New Design

I have played Tim's pipes for a few years now. I also have a nice photo collection of his work. Well worth taking a glance. http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg11/mrcygl/gellaitry4.jpg http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg11/mrcygl/gellaitry8.jpg http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg11/mrcygl/gella...

The Windybag Man

Jig which was actually a 4/4 march I composed, which I didn't much like at all. I sent it to Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon, and after a long night of radical pruning and significant rearrangement, it was transformed into a jig. Still a little tender around the nose holes, so not too fast.

This one came so easily to me that I'm suspicious
of it's possible similarity to something I may have hear.


This would go well with something like Sandy's New Chanter. It sounds very nice. I can't say that I've heard it before, myself.

And His Rest It Shall Be Glorious (With Harmony)

Here is an Israeli-Scottish collaboration.

If you can tune your practice chanter to BMW output, you can play with the harmony.

Thanks,

Not to worry--I certainly wasn't bothered or offended in any way! Actually, if you want to see tremendous reduplication of known phrases look at the classical heavy 2/4s. After an original frst, and maybe second part, the variations revert to standard forms for whole phrases. Yet the best of the man...

I'll take your advice, and try adding another variation. Works in progress always benefit from a little objective review...
