Book 1 was published in 2002 consisting of 96 tunes written by Joe Massey and myself over a period of about twenty years. Many included the story behind the tune. Also included was a double CD which featured every tune in the book arranged in sets.
A few years later we published Book 2 which included 24 new compositions from Joe (including two piobaireachd), 18 from myself and several more from three other contributors; Iain Sutherland, former Pipe Major of Milton Keynes Pipe Band, Bob Walters, and David Hunter, a young piper and composer from Dundee. And again the book was accompanied by a CD featuring all the tunes in the book.
Sadly Joe passed away on Christmas Eve 2013. Since then we have held an annual memorial recital/competition in his memory, organised by Joe Davies one of his pupils and now an instructor at the Army School of Piping in Edinburgh. Every recitalist has to include one of Joe's compositions in their selection.
All the tunes by Joe and myself are now available here as a free download.
All I ask is that if you use any of the tunes you acknowledge who wrote them.
