Default Farewell to Nigg; 3rd part

3rd Part. Bar 7

Scots Guard 2 has it written with a throw on D for the ending phrase and all other parts have a double C for the ending phrase; Is ths a typical Scots Guard "typo" (mistake) or was it actually composed with this variance?

Thanks in advance!

Jenni

Anyone?

I don't have any other publications with this tune to reference with.

Good question. I took a look at it and although it sounds ok with the D all pipers I have heard play it with the C. The tune is not in Duncan Johnstone's Book 1.

I suspect it's careless typesetting. It sounds as if it belongs in one of the other parts, not in the third.

The way I have it there's a throw the first time through the part and a C doubling in the 'answer' in the 7th bar. Same construction all through the tune.

Duncan Johnston sent me his tune in early 1981 with a batch of drone reeds I'd ordered. In his setting, the 3rd part 7th measure begins with a C doubling.
