I think that's what he said, he also mentioned he had an original chanter that he hadn't brought with him.

It was a wonderful presentation, Patrick's pipes were quite something to listen to, as was his singing.

I think you were slightly busy that day

In response to a question from the crowded room, Patrick sang the answer

Thank goodness for that question

In fact this time the chanter was made but Fanch Gourvès.

So not the Donald MacDonald replica.

I just got my copy today. I am beyond over the moon. Over the years I have had lots of these moments. For a piobaireachd nerd this is the very best time to be alive. I remember when I got a copy of the reprinted Binnias. Oh my lots and lots of great things which I had not thought of. Then I got Sidelights and Further Sidelights and eeek even better. Then the two Bobs Masters of Piobaireachd and then Donald MacLeods collections. OMG I am like a kid in a candy shop. Then Donald Macleod's MS and the MacArthur's MS and then the new volume of the PS collection and then Sight Readable Ceol Mor. Yipes Yipes can it get any better? Then Ceol Sean and all of the out of print collections in one place, holy moly. Then Ross's piping page with tones of great stuff. I am about to pass out and can I possibly integrate all of this new material. Then the Alt Piobaireach Club. I am going to pass out with glee. Now this book! I have been looking at the Colin Campbell MS for years and although I could sort of read it and know what movements to play, I never had any idea about timing of the tunes. Molard and Taylor have taken this beast of a MS and studied the PS version of some of the tunes and then beavered away to convert the canntaireachd into notation that a piper can actually play. The two of them have done a great job. Now that having been said did they recreate a notation that captures how these tunes were played when they were written. Who knows? Lots of folk try to recreate the sound of piobaireachd as it was played in the old times but as impressive as these efforts are one always has doubts and the evidence is occluded at best. So do the tunes in this work reflect what was played in years gone past. I don't know and I don't care. These two guys have simply brought to life many old tunes that have not seen the light of day for over 200 years and many of them are way cool. Should you buy the book. HELL YES!! I am putting the book under my pillow at night as perhaps this wonderful music will fill up my dreams. Way to go Patrick and Jack!!
