THE DAY IT DAWS
The Lowland Scots Bagpipe and its Music 1400 to 1715;
This is Pete Stewart’s Scottish companion volume to ‘Robin with the Bagpipe’. It contains music played by bagpipers described in Scots sources from the 15th to the 17th centuries and charts the history of piping in the Lowlands from the 15th century to the first appearance of music set for bagpipes in the early 18th century.
"In bringing together this splendid repertoire with the historical context within which it was set, Pete Stewart has set a new standard in the published scholarship of the lowland piping tradition ... his research is meticulous and penetrating .. yet remaisn highly readable .. he has acheived a synthesis of music and history that greatly enhances our understanding of both" (Dr Gary West, Dept of Scottish and Celtic Studies, University of Edinburgh)
