My dearest on earth, give me your kiss

What a great title! This pibroch is in Piobaireachd Society Book 11 (1966) p.352. Other titles on competitors’ lists are “The Lovely Lady’s Request” (1832) and “Dear Lady, give me a kiss” (1835).

The Piobaireachd Society editor, Archie Kenneth, made an emendation with which I disagree. In this recording, I insert “hiotroao” in the second half of the phrase b’. This restores the Urlar to a more orthodox Well-woven structure:

a b B A
b’ a’ B’ B”
