4Several more piping images haveemerged in the last few months, addingto the flood of previously unknown pic-tures that have come to our notice in recentyears. One of these – The Village Orchestra,featured in our centre pages – shows a mouth-blown bagpipe, probably from the Scottishborder region. Another is featured in NicholasCarolan’s article on page 26, and below canbe seen a third – a detail from “St Patrick’sDay” by Erskine Nicol, which was exhibitedat the Gorry Gallery last December. A collection of tapes made by the late HeinzBraun was donated to the NPU Archive byJohn Tuohy. These will be digitised and inves-tigated shortly. Other donations includedcopies of several Ó Riada Memorial Lecturesfrom Mary Mitchell-Ingoldsby, and, fromSandie Purcell, a copy of her own 101Original Compositions of Irish TraditionalMusic, as well as a copy of a rare work,Moffat’s 202 Gems of Irish Melody, a collec-tion that was probably, in its time, a popularprinted resource for traditional musicians.
