Northumbrian Minstrelsy




Published in 1998, this contains a collection of pipe tunes originally published in 1882. The tunes have been typeset in a form similar to the other tunebooks of the Society and some of the errors in the Minstrelsy have been corrected. Although other sources of music from former centuries have been published recently, the Minstrelsy (with all its imperfections) was once, the most available collection of traditional Northumbrian Music.
