Piobaireachd of the Week: Silver Medal: The Field of Gold

November 30, 2007

This delightful and very musical piobaireachd was composed by Pipe Major Donald MacLeod, and is one of twenty of his piobaireachd compositions published in his book. In his published introduction he says “They were only buttercups, but it was an uplifting experience, to see the sun shining on a field of such ordinary flowers, giving this enchanting acre a look of burnished gold.”
