Campbell Canntaireachd Volume 1

The collection was brought by John Campbell, son of Colin, to the Highland Society competition in 1816 and submitted for one of the money prizes then being offered to pipers who would produce pipe music in writing. But being in canntaireachd and not staff notation it was deemed unacceptable and the owner took it away. In 1909 it was rediscovered. JP Grant supervised the preparation of typed copies. Many of the tunes have now been published. A G Kenneth also worked on the remaining tunes.
