The following notes are from judges seminars held in November 2012 and April 2013 to discuss the set tunes. They are published in the hope that they will be of some interest to competing pipers and others. They should, however, be regarded only as the output from an informal discussion and neither as a complete and authoritative analysis of the tunes nor as a set of directions on how they should be played. Likewise, the sources listed should not be taken to be comprehensive.
There are sound clips of some of the tunes, illustrating possible ways of playing them, elsewhere oin the website.
