Play It Like You Sing It: Volume Two: The Music
Play It Like You Sing It is a groundbreaking collection from Cape Breton piper Barry W. Shears. The two volumes feature history, culture, images, bagpipe and fiddle sheet music, and Gaelic puirt-á-beul songs from the 19th- and 20th-century piping tradition of Nova Scotia.
Volume Two: The Music presents bagpipe arrangements and their Gaelic words as they were played and sung in Nova Scotia. The book contains 230 settings of pipe tunes, 19 fiddle tune settings connected to the piping tradition, and over 85 sets of port-á-beul lyrics. It is illustrated with 75 images of Nova Scotian pipers.
