Tune of the Day: The Bronze Card

Pipe march by Roddy Campbell

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. He writes:

Members of Gaelic choirs are expected to show some competence in the language. To that end the Comunn Gaidhealach has put in place an Olympian system of Bronze, Silver and Gold cards and ruled that each competing choir must have a certain percentage of each. My wife Jean, whose father spoke Gaelic but who was herself denied the opportunity of learning it, was over the moon when she was awarded her Bronze Card while a member of Còisir Ghàidhlig Bharraigh.
