The complete compositions of the man known the world over as the “greatest piper of the 20 century”. Donald MacPherson was something of a phenomenon in piping. His competitive record is well documented – and is something that will probably remain unsurpassed – but he was also a great teacher and ambassador for the instrument.
As those who were fortunate to hear him play will testify, his sound was virtually unique and set the standard. A few of Donald’s compositions are well known, such as ‘The Curlew’, ‘Bonnie MacGregor' and 'Mrs Donald MacPherson'.
This new book includes these gems as well as 27 other compositions that are full of music and demonstrate Donald’s talent as a composer. The book included facsimilies of his original manuscripts, typeset versions of the tunes, and photos from his amazing life of performance.
