The decision to re-publish the entire seven book Piobaireachd series comes in the wake of growing interest in the works of David Glen who was reckoned by the legendary John MacDonald, Inverness to be the most reliable authority in existence - and that remark was directly aimed at the works of the Piobaireachd Society and Archibald Campbell.

The series was initially published between 1880 and about 1907, and the originals have been meticulously cleaned up for faithful, but clear, copying, so you see the original settings exactly as written.

David Glen was an important link in the study of Piobaireachd, being a skilful editor, an assiduous collector and a fine piper who displayed considerable ability as well as an open mind in the task with which he presented himself.

It is hoped that by making this old series available once more that these settings will be heard more and more, in both the competitive and social piping arenas.
