MacInnes, Ian. The Highland Bagpipe: The Impact of the Highland Societies of London and Scotland, 1781-1844. University of Edinburgh, M. Litt. 1988.

A tour de force.  If nothing else, this is a must read for the student of pibroch, outlining as it does the significant impact which the Societies had upon today’s performance of pibroch – from the martial background of comportment and dress, to the creation of the major competitions of the 19th century, to the resulting standardization and reduction of pibroch structure. This is broken into several files (not cleanly). To the best degree possible, we will indicate what the files contents contain.
