The Queen Elizabeth II’s Salute

Scottish Power Pipe Band plays The Queen Elizabeth II’s Salute, a piobaireachd composed by Pipe Major Donald MacLeod (1917-1982) from the Isle of Lewis; one of the most innovative, modern composers for the bagpipe. As was recently noted, “every time a great pipe band takes a run at complete versions of the great music great things seem to happen” (http://blogpipe-pipesdrums.com/piob-b… ).
