2023 Set Tunes Series: ‘Young Neil’s Salute’

Since 2001, Dr. William Donaldson has been contributing his Set Tunes Series for pipes|drums readers. Now comprising more than 170 piobaireachds, the series is the world’s largest free online repository of ceol mor.

Each piece includes all known published manuscripts, often from obscure publications only available from the National Library in Edinburgh, and most are accompanied by a sound recording of Donaldson’s interpretation and analysis of the tune.

The latest contribution to the series is “Young Neil’s Salute,” found in Angus MacKay’s Manuscript, D.S. MacDonald’s Manuscript, Peter Reid’s Manuscript, David Glen’s Manuscript, and published in C.S. Thomason’s Ceol Mor.

Just click on the image to go to the Set Tunes section of pipes|drums, each painstakingly researched and analyzed by Donaldson, resulting in the largest single collection of published source material in one place.

Stay tuned to pipesdrums for the next piece in Dr. William Donaldson’s 2023 Set Tunes Series.
