|Two tunes here from the pen of the legendary
G. S. MacLennan, probably the finest composer of pipe music this century.
His most classic piece, The Little Cascade, is one which is played by
thousands of instrumentalists throughout the world. You will search in
vain for Shakespearean allusions in MacBeth's Strathspey, a tune probably
associated with John MacBeth, a native of Sutherland, who gained a certain
notoriety as piper to the Highland Society of London in the mid 19th
century. Although our information on the composer of this tune is somewhat
scant, we believe it to have been written by one Angus
"Marinade" MacTavish, so called because he was in the habit of
leaving his wife overnight.
