We continue our 2017 Set Tunes Series with the obscure and peculiarly-named piobaireachd, “Drizzle on the Stone.”

Dr. William Donaldson analyzes the piece, looking at all of the known published settings. He includes an audio file of the various renditions as he reads them.

“Drizzle on the Stone” is the most recent inclusion in the series, which numbers more than 170 piobaireachds and close a thousand settings, making it the most comprehensive compendium of ceol mor in a single place.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: The golden rule when working with a reed is, “You can always take material off the cane, but you cannot put it back.” So, remember, when removing the slightest amount of material, blow the reed again.
