“This is one of a three-volume series (somewhat confusingly called Vols. 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6). They are all wonderful, as is anything else Christine Martin and Taigh Na Teud, a small publisher on the Isle of Skye, put their hands to.”


“Wonderful series! “These are by far my favorite Scottish traditional tune books, and I have 'em all!”
