The tunes therein are sometimes quite common ones, but with strange little settings, and it is a great idea to ventilate them. This is first class piping by a very experienced player.
A 15 track album with many of Martin’s own previously unrecorded compositions, including a song he co-wrote with Richard Abbott and AnnMarie O’Grady at an IMRO songwriters’ week in Killarney, and a number of pieces from the James Goodman Manuscripts, ‘Tunes of the Munster Pipers’. These manuscripts were compiled over a 20 year period in the mid nineteenth century and were left by his family, after his death, to the library of Trinity College Dublin. Until now, many of these melodies have lain silent for over a hundred years.
