Does the sound of the pipes make the hair on the back of your neck stand up? Does the sight of a pipe band make your spine tingle in a way that other bands cannot? Then this book is for you! The author has crafted thirty tales around our best-known pipe tunes, introducing you to some fantastic historical figures and spectacular places. Not only does this book delve deeply into the origins and history behind the tunes, it outlines the basic musical rudiments of the compositions, exploring why they have so much appeal. There are surely few cultures on the globe that have such a powerful link between a musical instrument and its people. Music and song have always been vehicles for story telling and this book continues that tradition, using pipe tunes as the central theme. Illustrated card covers, New.
