I think that the Queen's Own Highlanders Standard Settings of Pipe Music has the 5-part version.

Choose your five...


The five-part Queen's Own setting is surprisingly difficult to find. As fas as I know it's in The Piper's Day (out of print), the Army Manual book 2 (out of print), and the Queens Own Standard Settings (out of print...)


The extra fourth part consists of Low A, grip to E, A, grip to F, A, grip to E, and then the rest of the part follows in the same pattern as the rest of the tune. Of course, this is the one variant that doesn't appear in Glen's setting!

Thank you for the info. I was able to find a copy of the pipers day on ebay for a really good price.
