A pipers ear. I have that, I hear the pipes whenever the wind rises in the mountains of Argyll, especially on a winters' night.

Piper's Ear: St Louis Symphony and a tune collected by Vaughn Williams called Lovely Joan. Sure sounds like it'd transpose to the pipes.

I'm not sure it would neatly fit the GHB scale. It's in Dorian mode, FWIW., so if the lowest note was G, you'd need a C natural. I'll give it a try and get back with results.

I'll be interested to hear your results. It's a lovely tune.

There are two options: 1. play it in B dorian, which would require a high B and high G # ( another downside- it might sound weird against A drones); 2. Play it A dorian, which would mean cross-fingering a C natural.
My choice would be A, which is how I wrote my setting.

How do you think the tune sounds on the pipes? Does it translate well?

I haven't had a chance to record it yet. That said, with my current reed, I'm not entirely happy with the C natural. I'll try it in a different chanter/reed combination.

That said, it should work in A Dorian for anyone who has a solid C natural.
