This book contains transcriptions of selections from three of Natalie MacMaster's albums: A Compilation, Fit as a Fiddle, and No Boundaries. These tunes were selected because the fiddling was easily heard over the accompaniment and the tune settings were reasonably transferable to standard music notation. These meticulous transcriptions include ornamentations reflecting as clearly as possible the way Natalie currently performs the tunes, which may have evolved since the CDs were recorded. The album source and particular cut are indicated at the beginning of each tune. Contact Rounder Records at 1-800-768-6337 for the recordings.
