Common Name David Glen Nether Lorn Peter Reid Angus MacKay Hannay/MacAuslan Donald MacDonald MacArthur/MacGregor Kintarbert' MS Colin Cameron Duncan Campbell Uilleam Ross Ballindalloch MS Thomason Donald Dow D. S. MacDonald John MacDougall Gillies McLennan Papers Robert Meldrum Notes
A Glase   i, 100                                 Setting in PS11 is very square and unidiomatic. James Campbell and Archibald Kenneth appear to have misconstrued the canntaireachd original.
A Glass (2)   ii, 101-2                                 Interesting tune only developed to first variation
Abercairney's Lament ff.39-40     ii,123       yes ff.128-129 ff.39-40 ff.59-60     i,         This is in Ancient Piobaireachd, but Glen takes it from the MacArthur MS
Abercairney's Salute ff.200-202           ff.34-36                       It's noteworthy that no tune which appears in the MacArthur/MacGregor MS also appears in Peter Reid, with the single exception of 'The Daughter's Lament', which appears in Reid under a different name
Airds Lament   ii, 103-7                                  
Airds March   ii, 87-90                                 Printed in PS13, but 'regularised' by chopping out the middle of the third line throughout the tune, thus missing the point of the fascinating six syllable figure which acts as an extended coda to each measure of the tune.
Alastair Charich's March ff.140-141         ff.25-27                       ff.198-199 Glen notes : 'The Castle Strone of Ross' s Coll but slightly different.'Meldrum gives an alternative title: 'The Red Brindled Bull'
Argyle's Salute ff.382-384 ii, 159-62       ff.245-248                         Glen calls this 'The Marquis of Tullibardine's Salute at Dunvegan Castle.'In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Donaich dall MhacDonail Nuras'.
Away to Your Tribe, Ewan ff.191-193 and again at 335-336         ff.249-253                         Glen re-sets the version in Ancient Piobaireachd fairly comprehensively, changing the time signature of the piece, and re-casting the taorluath and crunluath variations on the groundsthat those in MacKay and Thomason are 'tommy rot'.He cannot thereby be said to improve the tune, alas.Also he fails to pick upand correct the missing half bar in the ground and throughout the tune.He gives this setting twice, and at first blush there does not seem to be much difference between them.
Barrisdale Salute ff.327-329                                   This appears in Glen as 'Lord Berriedale's Salute' and according to Colin Cameron this was written by Kenneth MacRae piper to the Earl of Caithness
Battle of Athole ff.43-44     ii, 82       yes f.133 ff.45-46 ff.51-52     i, i, 22-23       Note, the D.S. MacDonald MS is not a straight transcript of MacKay: it sometimes does things MacKay doesn't, and from an indexing point of view, it presentsproblems.The MS has suffered significant bibliographic disruption: it has two pagination systems, neither consistent.
Battle of Auldearn   i, 56-8   i,.49-51         ff.62-63   ff.92-94   f.35     f.104   ff.22-24; 126-128 Meldrum times his duinte crunluath a mach figures with the emphasis on the initial quaver, as Donald MacDonald does.

Battle of Bealach nam Brog ff.1-3     ii, 81         ff.68-69           ii, 73       Colin Cameron calls this 'The Battle of Prague'.
Battle of Glenshiel ff.64-65     ii, 3-4       yes f.83 ff.89-101; original MS is mispaginated ff.84-86     i, ii, 101-2 f.38     Glen completes the tune with a crunluath fosgailte movement.MacKay gives the composer as 'Blind Mackay'.[presumably Iain or Ruairidh Dall]
Battle of Lochcarron Point ff.324-326 ii, 34-6   i, 158-160         ff.81-82           ii, 28-9     ff.177-179; 233-4 Glen notes alternative title as 'The Battle of Castle Strone'.Nameless in Colin Cameron, who had the title 'The Battle of Castle Strone' but has crossed it out heavily.In the Nether Lorn this is called 'Argyle's March'.Meldrum's second setting has the 'Battle of Strome' title.
Battle of Sheriffmuir ff.148-50 and again at 343-345     ii, 105-106   ff.103-108                         Glen has merely the usual minor differences in notational style here, otherwise the piece is as in Ancient Piobaireachd.
Battle of the Bridge of Perth       i, 210-211       yes   ff.108-111 ff.36-7   * i, i, 147-8     ff.67-69 There is a version of this in the Nether Lorn. Vol 2 no 58, with the title 'Duke of Perths March'.Duncan Campbell of Foss calls it 'The Battle of the Inch of Perth'.
Battle of the Pass of Crieff ff.322-324 i, 22-4 f.20 i, 81-82         ff.84-5                 ff.61-64 MacKay calls this 'The Laird of Coll's Barge', and the Nether Lorn, 'Bhratich Bhan'.
Battle of the Red Hill ff.314-315     i, 11-12     ff.24-5   f.53                   Glen gives as an alternative title 'Men of the Black Tartan'.The title in Colin Cameron is 'The Black Plaid'.
Battle of Waterloo ff.356-359                                   Glen leaves the setting in Ancient Piobaireachd more or less alone, contenting himself with substitution the 'down' eallach wherever it appears, and evening out the pointing of MacKay's siubhal
Battle of Waternish     f.59 i, 46-48         f.50-51     f.26       ff.56-7   ff.57-60

Black Donald's March       i, 192-194                       ff.60-61     In Angus MacKay's Ancient Piobaireachd this is called 'Black Donald Balloch of the Isles's March to Inverlochy 1427'.
Black Watch's Salute                                      
Black Wedders white Tail   ii, 144-7                                 After the ground this tune is practically identical with 'The MacGregors' Gathering'.
Blind Piper's Obstinacy ff.245-247 ii, 166-8   ii, 95-96         ff.107-108           i, 30-32 ff.22-23 f.35   In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Cor beg Mhic Leain'.
Brother's Lament ff. 153-154 and againat 404     i, 23-24     ff.44-45 yes ff.146-7 ff."82-83 ff.34-5         ff 24-25     The Glen text has taorluath and crunluath variations by Glen to complete the tune

Camerons Gathering (2)   ii, 170-171                                 Cognate with the MacDonalds of Clanranald's Gathering.Printed in PS15.
Capt. Archibald Campbell of Glenlyon's Lament   i, 88-90                                  
Capt. Wemyss Sutherlands Lament f.34             yes f.126 ff.25-27 ff.61-63     i,         Glen notes this as being by W. Gunn.In Duncan Campbell but not in MacKay's MS.
Carwhin's Lament   i, 79-82                                 One of the few tunes to begin with a double gairm: hiharin hiharin.
Catherine's Lament ff.94-95     i, 13-14     ff.32-3   ff.1-2           i, 24-25 f.59     Glen notes that this is called 'The Frasers' Gathering' in a note in the MacArthur MS
Catherine's Salute ff.154-156     ii, 67-68         ff.88-89                    
Chisholm of Strathglass's Salute ff.104-105 i, 155-9 f.23 ii, 50-52   ff.216-222         ff.241-243               Glen's preferred title for this is 'The Mackays March', and this is also the title pencilled in in Angus MacKay's text.Donald MacDonald's title is 'Chisholm's Salute'.The title in the Nether Lorn is 'Marsah na Shisalach'.
Clan Campbell's Gathering ff.f.257 and again at416-418   ff.27-28 i, 212                     ii, 24-142       Angus MacKay calls this 'Porst nan Doirneag na Blar nan Doirneag'.Glen gives a number of alternative titles, 'The Battle of Doirneag', 'Port nan Doirneag', 'The Song of the Pebbles'.

Clan Ranald's Tutor ff.306-307 i, 122-4   i, 208-209                             Nameless in MacKay.The MacKay text is the link joining 'Clan Ranald's Tutor' to 'Clanranald's Salute' in an interesting cognate group.Powerful echoes of 'Mrs MacLeod of Talisker's Salute'.
Clanranald's Salute     f.19                   f.13            
Cluny Macpherson's Lament                                   ff.12-15 In Alfred E. Milne's MS compiled by G. S. McLennan and Robert Meldrum this is titled 'Lament for Cluny Macpherson.Born 1804 Died 11 January 1885.This Beautiful Piobaireachd was Composed by Malcolm Macpherson the Family Piper written from his fingers by R. Meldrum'
Cluny Macpherson's March f.203     i, 248                     ii, 62       Angus MacKay calls this ''Spaidsearachd Thighearna Chluaine.Cluny McPherson's March', but D. S. MacDonald, apparently using the same source, calls the tune 'Inbhir na'h AbhuinnSpaidsereachd Mhic an Toisich.The Mackintosh's March to The Battle of Invernahavon.1386.A.D.'
Cluny Macpherson's Salute ff.100-101 and again at 302-303     ii, 121           ff.203-5 ff.180-181     i, i, 60-2       Angus MacKay has a setting of the tune known to Uilleam Ross, Thomason and David Glen as 'Cluny MacPherson's Salute', nameless in MacKay's MS at ii, 121.Glen notes that this version is 'slightly different from Ross's setting'.Archibald Campbell publishes a completely different tune under this title in PS4, following MacKay who, at ii, 39-40 has this version with thetitle 'Failte Thighearna ChluainieCluny Mac' jotted down as if in haste.
Colin Roy Mackenzie's Lament ff.60-63     ii, 69-71       yes ff.56-57 and again,at 115-117 ff,85-89 ff.87-90       i, 126-9   f.18 ff.76-79  
Company's Lament                     ff.150-151                
Corinessan's Salute ff.412-414 and againat 433                                 ff.150-152 Glen calls this 'The Lost Pibroch' and has two goes at the ground, one of them his own version.The other may be Charles Bannatyne's.
Corrynessan's Lament ff.392-394                                   Glen gives this as 'arranged by Charles Bannatyne from Air supposed by Rod. Dall MacKay'.
Craigellachie   i, 102-6                                 Called 'Craig Charan' in the Nether Lorn.Uses 'hedale' for double echo on F
Croan air Euan   ii, 136-8                                 Nice, bold tune, stylistic similarities with 'Square Taes March'
Daughter's Lament     ff.13-14 i, 123-124   ff.277-282 ff.50-51 yes ff.30-31 and again at 127-128 ff.28-30 ff.106-109   i,     ff.76-7     Donald MacDonald calls the tune 'Lament for the death of Genl. Cleaver.Cuhmach Chleibhar.'Colin Cameron has the tune as 'General Clavers Lament'.It clearly derives from Donald MacDonald's MS.It is the same tune as that now know as 'The Daughter's Lament'.
Davidson of Tulloch's Salute ff.345-348                                   Glen sets the tune in 4/4 as opposed to 2/4 in Ancient Piobaireachd, and generally gives a more idiomatic setting
Dead's Lament   ii, 128-9                                 This and the previous tune, Vol.2 no 56 have links with 'MacCrimmon will never return'.
Desperate Battle (Cachullin)       ii, 126-127   ff.168-174     f.10 ff.183-185 ff.38-42       ii, 59-120     ff.213-215 Printed in Ceol Mor both under this title and as 'Angus MacDonald's Assault'.Donald Macdonald calls this 'Angus MacDonald's attack on the MacDougalls'.Duncan Campbell of Foss calls it 'The Battle of Cullin'.
Desperate Battle of the Birds       ii, 72           ff.150-152 ff.264-266       ii, 77-86 ff.62-3   ff.15-18 Mackay's title is 'The Birds Fight or The Desperate Battle'.Meldrum calls it 'The Desperate Battle Perth 1396'.Duncan Campbell of Foss calls it 'The Desperate Battle--Harlaw'.
Dispraise of MacLeod f.57     ii, 92       yes   ff.59-60       i,   f.12      
Donald Gruamach's March   ii, 45-50   i, 178-182 ff.13-19                   i, 65 ff.90-2   ff.42-46 In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Leanan Mhic Donnil Gromich'
Drizzle on the Stone ff.96-97 ii, 122-4   i, 93           ff.167-168 ff.155-157     i, i, 35-6 f.82     In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Grahams March'.D. S. MacDonald calls this simply 'CruineachadhA Gathering'suggesting that the title the tune now bears in MacKay's MS, namely 'Ceob air Cloich', may not have been present in the original when MacDonald transcribed the tune.
Duke Hamilton's March   ii, 1-3   i, 20-22                             This appears in the printed sources as 'Lament for the Duke of Hamilton'.
Duke of Atholl's March f.414                                    
Duke of Perth's Lament ff.234-235     i, 225-226                     i, 143-4        
Duke of Perth's March ff.341-342                                   Glen takes the Ancient Piobaireachd version and changes its time signature from 4/4 to 6/8 giving a more fluent and plausible feel to the tune.
Duke of Perth's March (2)   ii, 129-32                                 This is a variant ofthe Battle of the Bridge of Perth
Duncan Macrae of Kintail's Lament       i, 112 and again at213       yes   ff.112-113 f.27 f.29 f.19 i, i, 101-2   f.22 ff.108-110 MacKay says 'Notep.112 as played by the editor's father.'
Duntroon's March   i, 66-7                                 Follows a rhythmical pattern visible in a number of marches such as 'The BlindPiper's Obstinacy', 'The Hen's March o'er the Midden', 'MacLeod of Gesto'sSalute' and a number of others, and if played exactly as the latter tune isnotated in Thomason (with flexible treatment of the E cadence) gives apowerful effect.There is a highlyunidiomatic setting in PS14.Its linksare obviously with 'The Sound of the Waves' suggesting that the survivingtexts of the latter have lost their first line, which may account for thetedium of the tune as it comes town to us through Angus MacKay (which appearsto be the earliest source).
Duntroon's Salute ff.40-41 and again at388-389     ii, 119         ff.129-130 ff.38-39 ff.123-124     i, ii, 34       Glen gives three titles for this tune: 'MacDonald's Salute', 'Duntroon's Salute','McDonald of Duntroon's Salute'.InGesto it appears, apparently, as 'Squinting Peter's Flame of Wrath'.MacKay calls it 'MacDonald's Salute orDuntron'.
Earl of Antrim's Lament ff.86-89     i, 247       yes   ff.153-156 ff.121-122 f.27 f.36 i, ii, 158-64 f.106   ff.38-41

Earl of Ross's March ff.130-135 ii, 82-5 ff.17-18     f.6                         Glen gives both MacKay and MacDonald grounds, following MacKay from var.1 onwards'McD being far wrong'.Both are markedas 'edited'.Gives as alternativetitle 'Heads of Corn.Ears of Corn',presumably following Gesto.Glencorrects the missing bar in MacKay's crunluath doubling as well.In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Chean naDaise'.

Euan a bachar shein mi shudar   i, 124-6                                 Title doubtful, difficult to construe in original.
Ewen of the Battles ff.82-83     ii, 41-42       yes   ff.143-145 ff.139-141   f.21   1, 4-5        
Extirpation of the Tinkers by the King's Order       i, 243-244                     i, 83-4       D. S. MacDonald says this was 'Composed by Donald Cameron Late Piper to Seaforth'.
Failte Iain 'Ic Aonghais ff.408-411                                   Docketed '1908'.
Fair Honey ff.97-98 ii, 124-7   ii, 113           ff.169-170 ff.189-190   f.49 i, ii, 57 f.46   ff.235-236 In the Nether Lornthe title is 'Vuile Vrionich'
Fare thee well, Donald ff.258-259 ii, 177-9   i, 216-217                     ii, 29-30       In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Chumh fear Cross'. In Angus MacKay's MS, thisis in the section of tunes from Blind MacDougal, and it is immediately adjacent to the 'Lament for Captain MacDougall', with which it shares interesting thematic links.
Farewell to the Laird of Islay ff.78-80             yes   ff.127-131   f.22   i,         Thomason gives Colin Cameron as a source for this tune.
Fhailt Dhute Donail   ii, 152-3

S.MacDonald gives titles not in his source Angus MacKay, namely 'Maorie naCoille Dhuibh The Foresters of the Black Forest.' followed by a couple of lines of Gaelic too blurred to read onthe microfilm and ending 'Frasers Lament'.
Fuinachair ff.219-220     i, 90                     i, 151-2       See also 'Piobairichaon Cnochan' in the Nether Lorn, i, 59-61 for an expanded and more regular version.
General Clavers Lament                 ff.30-31                   This appears later in the Cameron MS under the title 'The Daughter's Lament'. And is listed under that title above.
Glencow's March   i, 147-51                                 Nice tune.
Glengarry's Lament                         f.3; and at 43

Highland Society of Scotland's Salute ff.372-3, 376           ff.29-31                       Glen does nothing with this piece from Ancient Piobaireachd, except change the time signature of the ground from 6/8 to2/4. Sensibly.
His Father's Lament for Donald Mackenzie ff.16-19                     ff.24-5           ff.72-75 Glen dates this 1863.Ronald MacKenzie'swritten setting, clearly showing the disputed F's have time value is in NLSMS 22125.

Isabel Mackay   i, 63       ff.254-257                     f.30 ff.221-222 Donald MacDonald calls this 'The Battle of Maolroy'.The Nether Lorn calls it 'Clann donailRaoich' [raoich implies roaring or belching], and consists simply of aground and first variation.

John Garbh MacLeod of Raasay's Lament f.139   f.29     ff.20-24                     f.31 ff.217-220 From McD's MS'. says Glen--i.e.. this is different from the setting in Ancient Piobaireachd MacKay has a prolix and pointless taorluath and crunluath trebling which adds nothing to the tune. Reid takes the tune to the doubling of the first variation then says merely 'Here follows the Toarluid and Cruinluidh'.All Reid's echo beats prolong the first note of the group, unlike MacDonald who, in this instance, cuts the first one throughout. MacDonald has two taorluath and crunluath variations only, singling and doubling. Nicer setting than MacKay's altogether.
Ken sso Lurrich   ii, 50-4                                 There is a version of this in PS15.
Keppoch's March   ii, 30-4                                 There is a version of this in PS12.
King George the Third's Lament ff.362-364                                   Leaves Ancient Piobaireachd setting largely alone: point in transcription seems to be to re-assert the propereallach, i.e. played 'down', and draw links in the marginalia between this and MacLeod of Colbecks.So here, perhaps, is an example ofa MS text being created as an aid to study. Glenmay have been so thorough that he would transcribe a whole tune, just to see a single new feature in context.
King James V1's Lament             ff.4-6 yes   ff.10-12       i,     f.14   This is in Duncan Campbell, but not, apparently, in Angus MacKay.

Lament for Hugh   i, 97-100                                 One could square this up simply by doubling up the second phrase--hoendanhoen--throughout.Or, maybe better,the fourth bar throughout, so it went hoendan hoen, haembam haem, hoendanhaembam horodo hioem.There is asetting in PS13.

Lament for Sir James MacDonald of the Isles ff. 22-23 and againat 29     i, 137-138; ii, 73     ff.66-67 yes; both tunes f.119 ff.7-8; 182-183 ff.47-48       ii, 45-87     ff.205-206 Glen notes, following Angus MacKay,that this was composed by Charles McArthur. But Angus was merely following Angus MacArthur in the HSL MS. who identifies the composer as his uncle Charles. In fact MacKay gives two tune sunder this title, the second of which was published in PS7, 203-4.The tune given by Colin Cameron under this title is identified as being by William MacDonald Esqr. of Vallay, and is the second of these. Duncan Campbell of Foss gives both tunes.

Lament for the Dead ff.126-127   ff.50-51 i, 64       yes ff.13-14 ff.8-10 ff.79-82     i,         Peter Reid's setting is attractive, despite James Campbell and Archibald Kenneth's remarks attached to the pedestrian PS setting.

Lament for the Duke of Hamilton ff.165-167     i, 20-22         ff.112-114               ff. 16, 27 ff.82-84 See 'Duke Hamilton's March' in the Nether Lorn version above.The McLennan MS supplies the taorluath only, marked 'Wrong in McDonalds book'.

Lament for the Harp Tree   ii, 112-16 ff.3-4     ff.207-215             f.24   ii, 42-68       Donald MacDonald's title is 'Lament for the Tree of Hundreds'.In the Nether Lorn the tune usually called 'Kinlochmoidart's Lament' is called 'Cumbh craoibh na Teid' while this one is called 'MacLeods Lament'.

Lament for the Old Sword       i, 139       yes             ii, 71       There is an interesting setting by RonaldMacKenzie in the MS inaccurately ascribed by NLS to Pipe Major AlexanderMacKenzie, MS.22125.

MacDonald of Staffa's Salute     ff.30-31                                
MacDonalds are Simple ff.47--49 ii, 42-5   ii, 103-104       yes ff.136-137 ff.52-54 ff.128-129     i, ii, 68-9 ff.13-14     In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Clandonniel Sochaach'.
MacDonalds' March ff.188-189 i, 120-22       ff.236-239                         Nether Lorn title is 'Co gha bhi mi s'leiss Righ mi'.
MacDonalds of Clanranald's Gathering f.143 ii, 173-5   i, 156-157   ff.73-75                 i, 130-31       MacKay calls this 'The MacDonalds Gathering. Cnocan Aillean Mhic Aillean 'ic Iain.'In the Nether Lorn the tune is called 'MacDonald's Gathering'.There is a very similar tune with the title'Camerons Gathering' although the tune is by no means identical with the MacDonald/MacKay settings. There is a version printed in PS15 which treats the Campbell version as a separate tune and makes no mention of the cognate versions.
MacDonalds of Clanranald's Gathering to the Battle of Sheriffmuir ff.170-171     i, 171-172                     ii, 15-16        
MacDonalds' Salute ff.332-334 ii, 68-70         ff.25-28 yes   ff.38-39                 Glen has the usual minor notational differences from the text in Ancient Piobaireachd. He follows MacKay quite closely, but his Ground is pointed in a style much closer to that of Angus MacArthur, and may well be preferred to MacKay's timing. Corrects the missing 'edre' in MacKay's crunluath singling. In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Fannet'. The MacArthur/MacGregor ground is incomplete. Odd if the tune is really called the MacDonald's Salute, with which one would have expected the former piper to the MacDonalds Lords of the Isles to have been particularly familiar. Duncan Campbell has this: it's not in MacKay's MS, but is in his published book.
MacDougal of Lorn's Lament     f.45                         ff.110-111      
MacDougal of Lorn's March     f.44                         ff.110-111

MacGregors' Gathering     ff.7-8                             ff.9-11 Reid calls this 'The Stuarts' Gathering'. This is the tune Sir Walter Scott set the 'Gather Gregalich' words to.
MacIntosh of Borlum's Salute     f.38 ii, 43-44       yes ff.142-143 ff.73-75 ff.76-78   f.20 i, i, 109-111        
MacIntosh's Banner ff.329-330                                   David Glen says this was written by a W. MacKenzie. And it says as much in Uilleam Ross's book, p.111, which is where, presumably, he found it.
MacIntosh's Lament     ff.1-2     ff.76-82             f.46   ii, 24-5        
MacIntyres' Salute   i, 9-10   i, 240-241       yes   ff.159-161 ff.110-112     i, i, 85-87     ff.87-89 Thomason gives Colin Cameron as a source for this tune. The title in the Nether Lorn is 'MealaFenaig', [?Hill of the Crow? Meall a'feannaige?]
Mackay's Short Tune                   ff.222-223 f.176               In PS8, Archibald Campbell says the tune is in MacKay's MS and it was the only one in that source to be missed by C. S. Thomason. One reason Thomason 'missed' it is that it is not in MacKay's MS.
MacKay's White Banner     f.32     ff.201-206                       ff.50-53 Donald MacDonald calls this 'The White Flag'.
Mackenzie of Applecross's Salute ff.367-369                                 ff.185-187 Glen leaves the setting in Ancient Piobaireachd more or less alone for once. Meldrum calls it 'John Roy MacKenzie of Appplecross Salute.Born 1730.'
Mackenzie of Gairloch's Lament             ff.79-84                     ff.134-137 MacKay's Ancient Piobaireachd says this was'Composed by John Roy MacKay The Family Piper.'
Mackenzie of Gairloch's Salute ff.424-425     i, 163-164       yes f.132 ff.43-44 ff.133-134 ff.21, 23 f.15 i, ii, 103-4        
Mackenzies' Gathering ff.ff.136-137; 378-83         ff.157-160                         This is not Tulloch Ard. Angus MacKay's published setting is irregular and so is the one in Donald MacDonald's MS. Glen notes that both are short by two bars in the variations, but does not attempt to fill the gap.
MacKinnon's Lament   i, 94-5                                 See 'MacKinnon Music' in Oban Times, 24/02/1917, p.3, where Robert MacGregor queries Simon Fraser's giving this title to a nameless tune he found in Gesto.
MacLean of Lochbuie's Lament ff.427-429 and againat 415   f.63         yes f.123 ff.21-23 ff.57-58     i,   f.37     Thomason gives as his sole source for this David Glen's published collection of1880. This tune is in Duncan Campbellof Foss MS, but not in Angus MacKay.
MacLeans' Gathering   ii, 179-80   ii, 102   ff.28-30                         In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Cameron's March'. Printed with that title in PS14.
MacLean's March   i, 166-8         ff.43-5                       Published in MacKay, 53-5; Thomason, 185-6
MacLeod of Colbecks' Lament ff.373-376                           ii, 112       Glen re-sets this in 4/4 time and corrects one of the typographical errors in Ancient Piobaireachd.
MacLeod of Gesto's Salute ff.250-251 i,35-7 and also at i, 63-6   ii, 109-111                     i, 149-50     ff.80-81 Tune is nameless in the Nether Lorn which has a thumb variation and is cadenced interestingly differently from MacKay. Poor setting in PS13, noting the presence of settings in MacKay's MS and in General Thomason, but not giving accurate references or even mentioning that the tune is not nameless in those sources. A comparison of MacKay's ground where the cadence notes are indicated, with Colin Campbell's where they are not, suggests how carefully the performer must approach the latter's scores. In MacKay it is a very fine tune; in Campbell if played as written it is rather less so. Very similar rhythmically to Duntroon's March. The Nether Lorn has another version of this tune, also nameless at i,63-66. There is an indifferent setting of tune 1 in PS15 with a reference to a similar setting in Thomason, Nameless no.9. But James Campbell and Archibald Kenneth seem unaware that there are two settings of the tune in the Nether Lorn and that Thomason's Nameless tune corresponds with the second of these.

MacLeod of Raasay's Salute     f.47     ff.53-58             f.14           Thomason gives Colin Cameron as a source for this tune.
MacLeod of Talisker's Salute f.228 and again at238     ii, 49                             Glen attributes this to Donald Roy MacCrimmon; and there's a note to this effect in Duncan Campbell of Foss. Interesting links between the laird of Talisker's tune and the Middling Spree.
MacLeod's Controversy ff.354-355 i,70-1                                 Glen lightly alters the pointing in Ancient Piobaireachd to play the eallachs down and hold the Bs on downward runs. The 'Contalich's Lament' tune in the Nether Lorn ends with an attractive crunluath breabach.
MacLeod's Rowing Piobaireachd ff.179-81         ff.150-156                         Glen adds a taorluath and crunluath a-mach variation not in Ancient Piobaireachd
MacLeod's Short Tune ff.41-43 ii, 73-4   i, 77-8       yes f.131 ff.41-42 ff.53-54 and also at236     i, i, 18-20 ff.72-3     MacKay calls this 'Port Gearr MhicLeoid. Ataunt on MacLeod'. Glen also calls this 'A Taunt on MacLeod'. In the Nether Lorn it is simply called 'One of the Cragich'. Gillies's setting is the one claimed to be reproduced in PS7. Kilberry's wording strongly implies that he has the Gillies MS book sitting in front of him yet proceeds to turn the quavers into crotchets silently in his usual manner.
MacMhic Alisters Dead Lament   ii, 156-7                                  
MacNabs' Gathering   i, 17-19 f.53                         f.112   ff.187-189  
MacNab's Salute     f.52                                
MacNeill of Barra's Lament ff.348-349 i, 189-90         ff.21-3                     ff.190-192 The Nether Lorn calls this 'Dougald MacRaneils Lament'.
MacNeils March   ii, 181-3                         i, 103-6        
Macphersons' Salute                     ff.224-227                
MacRaes' March             ff.62-65                        
Marion's Wailing   i, 186-8   ii, 8-10   ff.59-63     ff.90-91                 ff.27-30 In the Nether Lorn the tune title is simply 'Moraig'
Marquis of Argyll's Salute     ff.25-26                                
Mary's Praise   i, 139-42   i, 67-68 ff.26-30             f.30 f.37     ff.52-3   ff.34-37 The Title in the Nether Lorn is 'MacLachlan's March'. The Hannay/MacAuslan has a note saying 'This Pibrach was Composed by McLachlan's Lady praising a Natural Production.Very S: Moladh madre Thuibh and .C.'
Massacre of Glencoe   ii, 9-11 f.21     ff.119-124                   f.102   ff.175-177; 194-6 The Nether Lorn calls this 'Varon Na Glin ins Mich gun Erie'. Meldrum's second setting is marked 'MacDonald's Taken from Ceol Mor'.
McIvers March   i, 137-8                                  
McNeil is tighearn ann   ii,110-12                                 There is a version of this in PS11.
Melbank's Salute ff.128-129     i, 189-191         f.72   ff.196-200 ff.3-4         f.23   Angus MacKay's Ancient Piobaireachd calls this 'MacKenzie of Millbank's Salute. Composed by John MacKay. 1821
Melford's March   i, 85-8                                  
Menzies Banner f.414                                   Glen notes 'Transposed from Canntr. by Dr. Bannatyne. I think this is wrongly transposed'.
Menzies Salute ff.337-341   ff.55-6     ff.125-131                       ff.114-117 Glen corrects the slip in bar one of the ground of Ancient Piobaireachd, gives Donald MacDonald's ground a swell, the text then proceeds to give both MacKay's and MacDonald's versions of the tune.
Merry Scotland               yes                      
Miss Emma Haldane's Lament ff.422--424                                   I published anarrangement of this in my book Pipers (2005)
Mrs MacLeod of Talisker's Salute ff.316-319     ii, 13-15       yes ff.94-95 ff.69-72 ff.98-101                
Mrs. Smith's Salute       i, 205-7       yes ff.39-40 ff.65-68 ff.6-9       i, 53-55 ff.80-81     Thomason gives Colin Cameron as his source for this tune along with Angus MacKay's MSS.
Munros' Salute ff.353-354                                    
My dearest on earth, give me your kiss ff.89-93                                   Thomason gives ColinCameron as his sole source for this tune
My King has landed in Moidart   ii, 76-8 f. 15     ff.13-19                          
Nameless, Hiemto cherede, cherede cherede ff.114-115     ii, 117-118           ff.208-210 ff.157-160

Nameless, Hiharin dareche dareche hadareche   i, 77-9                                 There is a rather unimaginative setting of this in PS13.
Nameless, Hiharin dro o dro ff.121-123                 ff.217-219 ff.162-165             ff.227-229 It is interesting to speculate where Uilleam Ross and David Glen got their settings. Glen plays his eallach 'down'; Ross gives it in Angus MacKay's style. Meldrum notes 'A Beautiful Pibroch Nameless. Taken from Duncan Campbell Castle Newe's Collection', so Meldrum obviously had access to it, or to transcripts taken from it. There are published settings in Ceol Morp.387 and David Glen's Edinburgh Collection ii, 8-9, but Archibald Campbell makes to allusion to these inPS4, p.108
Nameless, Hiharin hiento ff.308-309     i, 242                              
Nameless, Hiharinhiodrein hihodro dreodro   i, 69                                  
Nameless, Hiharin hihioedre, hiharin hihioenem       ii, 39-40             ff.14-               There's a title sketched in for this in Angus
Nameless, Hiharin hihiotraen, edrehao hiharin                   ff.205-207 ff.31-33                
Nameless, Hiharin himtra hihodrodrooche   i, 61-2                                 There's a setting of this in PS13 showing a doubtful sense of tonality.
Nameless, Hiharin himtra hodrodrodro   i, 60-1                                  
Nameless, Hiharin hiodin, hiemdan hihiodin ff.300-301

Nameless, Hiharin hodinhihorodovea   i, 68-69                                 There is a not very musical setting of this published in PS12
Nameless, Hiharinhioen, hiodroenhioen f.285     i, 91                     i, 56        
Nameless, Hiharinodin hiharindro, hiharinodin hiharindro ff.118-120 i, 19-22   i, 237-239           ff.214-217 ff146-149                
Nameless, Hiharinodin, hiharindro, hiemenodin hiementra ff.101-103     i, 198-200           ff.178-181                 Glen notes that according to Bannatyne this tune was called 'The Battle of the Shirts'
Nameless, Hiharintra hotra   i, 37-9                                 Longand interesting tune; much alternation of low A and G in a rocking pattern; at first blush structure seems irregular.
Nameless, Hihio tro tro ff.107-109 ii, 109-10   i, 220-222           ff.195-198 ff.113-116       ii, 58-28       In the Nether Lorn this is identified as 'One of the Cragich'.
Nameless, Hihorodo hao ff.294--295     I, 125     f.52               i, 92       Thomason, Namelessno.5
Nameless, Hindohindo, hindorodin f.303     ii, 122                             MacKay'sversion begins withthe ffirst Motionof the Nether Lorn version.The latterdoesn't have that nice little turn either: hindariddo hindaridto hindariddocheende, either, preferring hindariddo hindaridto hindariddo cheveinstead.Published in Thomason asnameless no. 15.
Nameless, Hindohinto, hinocheve ff.304-5 i, 176-7   i, 201-202                     i, 111-2       MacKay's version begins with the First Motion

Nameless, Hirarin hiorodin, hiorodo hihiodin ff.124-125                                    
Nameless: Chehotrao hodro, chehotra hodro   ii, 81-2

Nameless: Hiharin hioen hodroeo hoen   i, 71-4                                  
Nameless, Hindorodinhindodre hiotrahodin hiotradare   i, 107-8                                 Nice little tune; goes with a great swing.
Nameless: Hihorodo hiharara cherede cherede   ii, 103                                 There is a version of this in PS15.
Nameless: Hindre harodin hiodin hiharin   i, 151-3                                  
Nameless: Hindreve hamhiotro   i, 126-7                                  
Nameless: Hindro hindro hiotrodin hihamto   i, 172-5                                 Printed in PS12. This rather anonymous piece was one of the first nameless tunes to be published by James Campbell and Archibald Kenneth from the Nether Lorn canntaireachd in the Piobaireachd Society Collection (second series)
Nameless: Hinodin hinodin hiohodin hiodin   ii, 162-4                                 Nice tune. Variations are very similar to 'The MacKay's White Banner'
Nameless: Hinotrao hinotra himtodin himhintro   ii, 92                                  
Nameless: Hiorodotra cheredeche hiririhia cheredeotra   ii, 100-1                                  
Nameless: Hiotrotraho hiobabem hinotreo hinem   ii, 79-80                                 A version of this is printed in PS15.
Nameless, Hodin hiotrahodin hiotra hodin hiotra chelalhodin   ii, 158-9                                  
One of the Deads Lament   ii, 127-8                                 Hindecheemto hinde cheoa. This and the following tune, vol.2 no. 57 'Deads Lament' (Himde chenda himto hinda) are cognate with 'MacCrimmon will never return'.
One of the Irish piobarich   i, 62                                 Curious affair: much complicated work on the left hand, consists merely of a ground and 'first Motion'.The latter mainly comprises a long succession of high Gs and As.
Paigh bodaich nail ach Ruairie   ii, 149-51                                  
Park Piobaireachd ff.24-25 i, 45-6   i, 255 and again atii, 56-58   ff.268-270       ff.157-158 ff.181-182     i, ii, 67-68       Thomason gives Colin Cameron as his sole source for this tune, although it occurs in Donald MacDonald and Angus MacKay's MSS. There are slight notational differences between Ross and MacKay, but Ross follows MacKay very closely otherwise. Has a different title: calls the piece 'The Stirling Park Pibroch', the title the tune also bears, interestingly, in Duncan Campbell of Foss's MS, and in what may have been their common source, the so-alled 'KintarbertMS'.
Pioparich aon Cnochan   i, 58-60                                 This is a bigger and structurally more regular version of the tune called 'Fuinachar' in Angus MacKay's MS.
Pipers' Meeting   i, 91-2                                  
Porst na Lurkin   i, 29-30                                 This is another of the handful of tunes to begin with a double gairm. See 'Square Teas' above.? Leargan, battlefields or hillocks?? Leargainn, pastures or slopes? This is an interesting and attractive tune after the ground, with a playfully extended third line.
Porst Ullar   i, 41-3                                 James Campbell and Archibald Kenneth take considerable liberties with this tune in their published version in PS12.
Port Marie   i, 127-9                                 Nice bold and simple little march. For a closely related variant text see Nether Lorn Nameless, Hindre cheen hadrehioem, hindre cheen hadre haem, i, 147-50.
Pride of Barra ff.71-74 1, 15-17   i, 58-60 and again atii, 120   ff.184-189   yes ff.154-156 ff.119-121 ff.245-246     i,       ff.192-194 MacKay calls this 'MacNeill of Barra's Lament'. Donald MacDonald calls it 'MacNiel of Barray's March'.
Prince Charles's Lament f.377                                   Glen introduces slight differences in pointing the ground, not improving on this occasion the expression in the setting printed in Ancient Piobaireachd.
Prince's Salute f.414     i, 141-144                           ff.152-154 MacKay calls this 'Prince James of Wales's Salute Composed by John MacIntyre 1715.'
Prinsah beg Sate loum a thu   ii, 142-4                                 Printed in PS13 as 'Little Prince--you are my choice', with rather questionable timing as is often the case in the Piobaireachd Society's versions of canntaireachd scores.
Queen Anne's Lament ff.311-312 ii, 132-6   i, 25-26       yes f.54 ff.13-14 ff.17-19     i,   f.8     In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Day yesterday and here yesterday'.
Rory McLoude's Lament   i, 131-5                                 Printed in PS11, where the usual liberties are taken with the original score.
Salute on the Birth of Rory Mor MacLeod ff.184-185 ii, 107   i, 74                     ii, 87       In the Nether Lorn the title is 'McLeods Dog Short Tail'
Salute to Inverary ff.206-209 i, 115-7   i, 250                       f.109     Thomason calls this the March of the Lord of Coll. This is the title the fragmentary text in MacDougall Gillies bears also. Obviously the latter was transcribed from Ceol Mor.The title in the Nether Lorn is 'Cromhlaoith air Aidin Thorbein.'
Salute--Supposed by Roderick (Dall) Mackay ff.162-163                                    
Scarce of Fishing     f.62 i, 36-38         ff.45-47   ff.201-205   f.50         ff.179-182 Reid calls this 'Lochnell's Lament'. Meldrum marks the tune '22d. July 1931.R.M.P.M.'
Sinclairs' March   i, 6-8                   f.10             This is also called 'The Red Ribbon'.
Sir Hector Mackenzie of Gairloch's Lament     f.57                           f.62    
Sir James MacDonald of the Isles' Salute f.179 and again360-362   f.34                               Glen introduces some minor differences in pointing, particularly to the timing of the eallach, but otherwise leaves the setting in Ancient Piobaireachd largely alone, apart from the usual basic differences in notating introductory notes.
Sir James MacDonald's Lament                             i, 113-4; i,117       There are two tunes here, the second by MacDonald of Vallay. D. S. MacDonald marks the first 'ByCharles MacArthur'.
Sir John Garbh MacLean of Coll's Lament   i, 169-71   ii, 79-80   ff.229-285     ff.11-12           ii, 80-64 f.95   ff.209-211 The title of this in the Nether Lorn is 'Porst Ullar mhic Eachin'.
Slanssuive   ii, 54-5                                  
Sobieski's Salute ff.222-223 ii, 38-40   i, 113-114                     i, 41-42       Glen's text is marked 'own arrangement'. In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Sophia Eskie'.
Sound of the Waves against Duntroon ff.193-196   f.25 i, 97-100         ff.19-21           ii, 4-6       Angus MacKay has two tunes under this title, one as above in vol ii, and one invol.i, as here where it bears the title 'Duntrons Warning'. D. S. MacDonald also calls it 'Duntroon's Warning'.
Square Teas March   i, 25-6                                 One of the tunes beginning with two gairms; Linkswith'Fuinachair' in AngusMacKay's MS.
Sutherlands' Gathering f,60 i, 153-4 ff.35-6 ii, 45-47       yes f.121 ff.2-5 ff.64-66     i   ff.86-7     MacKay's text is identified as 'Blind MacDougalls set'.
Sutherlands' March ff.214-219 i, 178-80       ff.132-138                          
Tavillich   i, 11-14                                 Not in Ceol Mor. Begins 'Hiharin ffour times'; I am not aware that any other tune does this.
The Bard's Lament ff.70-71     i, 133     ff.58-61 yes f.154 f.118 f.23     i, i, 8 f.79      
The Bicker   i, 96             f.111 ff.148-149 ff.144-145       ii, 69-70 f.9 f.16   Called 'Robt. Sinclairs Wife Lament' in the Nether Lorn. Duncan Campbell of Foss calls this 'The Royal Bicker'. This is the title it bears in the so-called Kintarbert Manuscript of Angus MacKay.
The Bicker: Two faced Englishman       i, 65-66       yes                      
The Big Spree ff.84-86     i, 1-2   ff.144-149 ff.1-3   ff.60-61 ff.145-147     f.38   ii, 27-8 ff 1-2   ff.47-50  
The Blue Ribbon   i, 3-6   i, 175-177   ff.262-267     ff.48-49   ff.1-5   f.28         ff.110-114 Donald MacDonald calls this 'The Blue Ribbon (The Grants)'. He has another tune called The Blue Ribbon, which is nowadays called 'The Tune ofStrife'. The Nether Lorn gives 'Porstna Straine' as the name of this tune: Dwelly records 'stri' as strife, and 'strial/striam/strian' as a strip of cloth. So that a possible translation might be 'The Ribbon Tune'. In volume ii of the Nether Lorn is a tune called 'Ribban Goarm', which is 'The Tune of Strife', beginning Chenodin traffour times chemodintro hintrotra hiotraodin himbantro
The Boat Tune ff.99-100     i, 235-236           ff.174-176       i, i, 20-22        
The Carles with the Breeks   i, 44-5                     f.5           The Nether Lorn calls this 'Lord Bredalbin's Gathering'
The Comely Tune ff.385-387 i, 108-9   i, 39-42         ff.79-80                   Nameless in Colin Cameron's MS
The Company's Lament ff.315-316     i, 115-116       yes f.120 ff.15-16       i,          
The Cragich:                                      
The Crunluath Tune ff.236-237     ii, 21-22                     i, 88-89       After the ground, this is just the 'Desperate Battle of the Birds'
The Earl of Seaforth's Salute                                   ff.3-5 Interesting setting in Ronald MacKenzie's MSS. This is the classic example of a tune published by MacKay and thereafter avoided by the compilers of MSS. Not even Glen has got it. According to Archibald Campbell there is a partial setting in the MS of Donald MacDonald junior now 'lost' and apparently available only in Campbell's own transcript.
The End of Ishberry Bridge ff.313-4 ii, 175-6   i, 126-127         ff.77-78           i, 63-4     ff.196-197 Glen gives an alternative title as 'The Atholl Salute'.In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Fad MarSho tha Shinn'.
The Fairy Flag ff.204-206     i, 251-2         ff.15-18             f.105      
The Finger Lock   ii, 108-9   i, 61-63 ff.20-22                     ff.48-9   ff.89-91 The Hannay/MacAuslan gives 'Ghlas Mheur or lock on fingers' as the title
The Frenzy of Meeting ff.7-10 ii, 94-7   i, 79-80       yes   ff.164-165       i, ii, 70-67       In the Nether Lorn this is called 'Brian O duff's Lament'
The Frisky Lover ff.309-311     ii, 31-32       yes   ff.140-142               ff.165-167 Glen gives an alternative title of 'The Minister's Confusion'. MacKay's title is 'The Frisky Courtier'.
The Glen is Mine     f.61                   f.1            
The Gordons' Salute   i, 33-5                                  
The Groat   ii, 164-6   i, 153-155       yes ff.3-4   f.235       ii, 12-14 ff.18-19   ff.106-108 In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Mairsall na Grantich.' In Angus MacKay's so-called Kintarbert MS, the title is 'The Drunken Groat'
The Half Finished Piobaireachd ff.370-371 ii, 36-8                                 A good example of the urge to regularise. Glen is uncomfortable with the 17-bar format of the tune in Ancient Piobaireachd, and adds a bar in the third line of every measure, accepting Thomason's emendation. Usual notational differences from MacKay.
The Hen's March o'er the Midden f.93     ii, 18                     i, 91       Glen notes that the tune is by John Dall MacKay. Thomason gives Colin Cameron as a source for it.
The Lament for the Corrie                                   ff.233-235 Meldrum notes: 'By Dr. Charles Bannatyne 1909'. Interesting tune; not unlike the style of Donald MacLeod.
The Little Finger Tune ff.210-212     ii, 99-100         ff.98-99           i, 33-35 ff.41-2 f.11    
The Little Spree ff.150-151     i, 69   ff.139-143                       ff.31-3 Donald MacDonald calls this 'An Daorach Mheanach'.
The MacCrimmon Cairn at Boreraig Dunvegan                                   ff.229-231 Meldrum notes that this is 'Composed by Angus Macpherson 1933'

The Old Woman's Lullaby f.152 i, 101   ii, 33       yes f.55 f.37 ff.83-84   f.23     f.58   f.237 This is 'Seaforth's Lament' in Uilleam Ross, and Glen notes that John MacKay calls it 'George Donn MacKenzie's Lament'. Glen adds a taorluath of his own. Angus MacKay's title is 'The Old Woman's Lullaby in the Mountain.' Meldrum preserves a different version from that played by R. U. Brown and R. B. Nicol.
The Parading of the MacDonalds ff. 141-142 and againat 239-241     ii, 77-78   ff.36-40                 ii, 132-61       Donald MacDonald calls this 'MacDonald of the Isles Salute'
The Piper's Farewell to his Home ff.275--282                                    
The Piper's Salute to his Master                               f.97     General Thomason gives Colin Cameron as his source for this tune
The Piper's Warning to his Master     ff.5-6     ff.98-102             f.30            
The Pretty Dirk f.353                                   Minor notational differences only distinguish Glen's score from Ancient Piobaireachd.
The Red Ribbon   i, 6-8   ii, 25-26       yes ff.147-8 ff.102-104 ff.73-75 f.20 f.32 i,       ff.189-190  
The Red Speckled Bull ff.197-198     i, 104-106   ff.258-261     ff.25-26             ff. 93-4     Donald MacDonald calls this 'Se'n t'Arm Mharbh me'. The title in MacKay and Gillies is 'An t'arm Breachd Dearg.'
The Rout of Glenfruin   i, 27-9   ii, 65-66 ff.5-8             ff.5-6 f.34         ff.145-147 In the Nether Lorn this is called 'MacGrigor's March'. The Hannay/MacAuslan calls this 'ThePursuit of Glenfroin'. Meldrum's setting is marked 'J MacDougall Gillies Setting. John Died in 1925.R.M.P.M.' Donald MacKay has an interesting timing of the ground, which he has later tried to erase to make it square with his uncle Angus, but can still be made out and makes good musical sense.
The Rout of Glenlivet                                   f.99 This tune appears in A. E. Milne's MS, ff.203-4, signed 'Robert Meldrum 1928'
The Rout of the Lowland Captain ff.212-214 ii, 70-2   ii, 23-24                     i, 47-9       In the Nether Lorn this is called 'Fhailt Mhic Leain'
The Rout of the MacPhees ff.241-243 ii, 24-7   ii, 89-90                     i, 118-20       In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Vuirlin Corrich Chaoil'
The Royal Salute ff.163-164                                   By Dr. CharlesBannatyne
The Sauntering ff.252-255     ii, 112                     ii, 100-101       Glen gives analternative title as 'The Conversation'
The Sister's Lament ff.176-178 i, 49-50   i, 151-152 ff.23-5       f.28           ii, 69070       The Nether Lorn calls this 'Daughter's Lament'. The PS'translation' in vol 4 is a pretty rough affair.
The Stewarts' White Banner f.396 ii, 60-3   i, 128-130                     i, 98-100       In the Nether Lornthe title is 'Samuels Black dog'
The Sword's Lament       i, 70 ff.37-40         ff.114-115                  
The Tune of Strife   i, 4-7   i, 43-45   ff.161-167                   ff.68-9 ff.19-20   Donald MacDonald calls this 'The Blue Ribbon'. And the Campbell canntaireachd version is indeed this tune. There is another tune in the Nether Lorn, ii, 56-60 entitled 'Ribban Goarm' which begins 'Chenodintra ffour timeschemodintro hintrotra hiotrarodin himbantro'
The Unjust Incarceration ff.159-161 i, 1-3   i, 55-57         ff.32-33           i, 9-11 ff.6-7   ff.122-125 Glen attributes this to Iain Dall MacKay and gives an alternative title, 'ThePiper's Lamentation in the Stocks'. Campbell calls it 'Capper Eagarrich'. Robert Meldrum marks it 'The Pibroch Society Setting for 1930 Competitions', and he gives the four line version.
The Vale of Keppoch is become desolate ff.419-21                                   Glen notes that this is written by Jas. Mauchline
The Vaunting ff.186-187         ff.223-228                       ff.173-175 Donald MacDonald's title is 'An Intended Lament'. Thomason gives both Keith and Colin Cameron as sources for this tune. Glen adds a siubhal from Donald MacDonald's MS, but his setting of the ground is obviously based on Ancient Piobaireachd which he resets clumsily to accommodate his standard eallach and bottom hand echo beats with the accent falling on the opening dotted quaver. MacDonald's is by far the best setting.
The Waking of the Bridegroom       ii, 101       yes f.151 ff.111-112 ff.28-29     i, ii, 40-71        
Too long in this condition ff.272-273 ii, 169-70   i, 161-162                       ff.64-5   ff.19-21 In the Nether Lorn the title is 'McFarlan's Gathering'. John MacDougall Gillies picked up a version of it a century later in Glendaruel with the same title: evidently this is what the tune was called in Argyll.
Tulloch Ard ff.273-275   ff.39-40 i, 92 and again at245-246                     ii, 71-2     ff.156-158

Young Laird of Dungallon's Salute ff.365-367 ii,117-20, and 186-7         ff.80-83                       Glen changes the 6/8 time of Ancient Piobaireachd sensibly into 4/4. In the Nether Lorn the title is 'Dungalans Lament'.
Young Neill's Salute ff.229-230     ii, 61-62                     i, 115-6        
You're Welcome Ewan Locheil ff.66-67     i, 34-35     ff.97-99 yes ff.149-150 ff.104-105 ff.117-118     i, i, 139-40 f.45
