Tune of the Day: The Boy's Lament for His Dragon

Traditional Scottish pipe march

The earliest appearance in print of this pipe march, composed by William MacKay, seems to be as “The 72nd's Farewel to Aberdeen” in Pipe Major William Ross's 1885 collection. The “Dragon” of the title is thought to mean a kite.
