Background

Frasers March appears only in the Colin Campbell manuscript. The piece is interesting for the repeated use of the interval of low-G to C-sharp with several grips. The effect is interesting and quite insistent. In the dithis doubling the Cs in this position are tripled, echoing the repeated dissonant tritone of the ground. The piobaireachd society[1] considers this to be an error, but it is not at all clear that it is.
