Comments:
One of the most popular pipe tunes ever, and long a staple of massed bands at Highland Games throughout North America. It began as "The Bens of Jura," written in Malta in the mid-1890s. According to Seumas MacNeill's in "Masters of Piping (2007), it subsequently became "The 71st's Farewell to Dover" but soon returned to its original name. Later it was "The Highland Brigade's March to Heilbron," then "The Burning Sands of Egypt." These titles were all stuck to it by pipers, with whom the tune was immediately popular. But the composer referred to it always as "The Bens of Jura."
