In this version of the Earl of Seaforth's Lament: https://ceolsean.net/content/McLenPi...ok01%2018a.pdf the torluath (tri-luath) is not "brebach".

Also in George Moss's version of Struan Robertson's Salute, here: http://www.drpetercooke.uk/occasiona...och-notations/ the torluath is again not "brebach."

I wonder if the torluath brebach is sometimes notated in places where it could reasonably and musically be replaced with a "normal" torluath landing onto an extended theme note as in the examples above?
I really enjoyed that recording. Thanks for sharing!
