Piobaireachd is the unique and historic music of the Great Highland Bagpipe.  It was created within an aural culture and retained through the generations by oral transmission.

In Victorian times the music was refined and captured into staff notation.

Piobaireachd should be played at a steady pace, allowing the melody to float over the rhythm of the notes.
