ISLAY CHARMS SET:
Angus G. MacLeod
Crann Tara
Fiona MacLeod 
Angus G. MacLeod by Pipe Major Donald MacLeod
Crann Tara by Allan MacDonald
Fiona MacLeod by Pipe Major Donald MacLeod
The ever-present march, strathspey and reel set now.  Angus G. MacLeod is played here as a 2/4 march, though it is usually played as a slow air.  It is from Pipe Major Donald MacLeod's Collection.

The strathspey Crann Tara comes from the Moidart Collection by Allan MacDonald.  Crann Tara was the name used for the fiery cross used to round the clansmen, or for the gathering itself.

Fiona MacLeod is another tune from Pipe Major Donald MacLeod's Collection.  Donald wrote this reel for his daughter.
