SEARCHING FOR A TUNE OR COMPOSER: To find a particular tune title, enter one or two appropriate words into the "Title" search above. For example, to find the tune "Brigadier Ronald Cheape of Tiroron" DO NOT enter the whole title. Enter 'Cheape' or 'Chea' into the 'Title' field. (Spelling mistakes will hamper your search!) If you want to see the tunes of John MacColl, enter a few letters into the 'Composer' field (i.e. 'John') and select his name from the drop-down menu.

NB: All italicized text is a live link.

There is no charge to access and download the documents in this section.

My thanks go out to Dr. William Donaldson and to Steve Scaife of Ceol Sean Bagpipe Music Books on CD for their help in securing and preparing these manuscripts. Thanks to the Piobaireachd Society for cross-linking with us to allow easier access to all of the manuscripts.
