Pipe reel - The Sound of Mull
from Brenda Stubbert, Endless Memories
Orignally published in the Athole Collection (1884) as Cronan na Linne Mhuilich, this tune has been circulating globally due to recordings by both Chris Norman and Alastair Fraser. In Cape Breton, during the 1980s it was performed by a group called The Cape Breton Concerto and also recorded by Sandy MacIntyre. More recently, in 2008, Brenda Stubbert recorded it with Howie MacDonald on her Endless Memories CD. Note the above Cape Breton setting is modal in character whereas in the Athole , the setting uses all c natural notes.
