  • February 10, 2014 Handy resource for organ, not perfect for pipes

    Many of the pipe arrangements, are impossible to play as written. As any learner piper knows, you can not repeat the same note directly after itself without an embellishment or grace note. This occurs in several of the scores, with some scores entirely devoid of embellishment or grace notes. However...

    I primarily bought this book for the organ accompaniment, a purpose it does fulfill.

  • January 18, 2010 Decent arrangement; wish composers were credited

    The performer would have more context, and perhaps a clue to research other arrangments, if this publication noted that Highland Cathedral is not a "traditional piping tune" but a 1982 composition by Michael Korb and Uli Roever. The score in this (MorningStar) book agrees with the oldest organ/bagpipe sheet...

    music I can find, which is dated 1994 and credits Korb as composer, organ arrangement by Wetherald and pipe arrangement by Brian D. Yates. The bagpipe score is decipherable by non-pipers once you know the rules, but the elaborate grace notes appropriate to the pipes will not work on an organ because there is an attack time per note (vs. a bagpipe which sounds continuously). I found that a single or double grace note or a "crush" note, with a reed or trumpet stop, gave a good effect.

  • February 18, 2009 Beautiful duets

    I'm a presbyterian organist with a husband and friends who pipe. We love the rendition of Highland Cathedral. I was in my first year of playing organ and was able to work up the organ part for this song easily. The other songs are a bit more of a...

    challenge. Not all the songs are appropriate for a church service, but for other joyful occasions (wedding, recital) would be excellent. I feel this book was well worth the money spent.
