Cover of Book One of the New Zealand Collection

The New Zealand Collection of Bagpipe Music was published by Alexander T. Cameron. He came from a family of pipers and lived in New Zealand from around 1868 to 1957. Geoff Hore has prepared a very nice history of the Cameron family that includes additional information on Alexander T. Cameron.
Alexander Cameron published two collections of tunes. The first was entitled "A New Zealand Collection of Bagpipe Music" and had 188 tunes. It was published in 1934. The second collection of 15 tunes was published in 1936 and was called "The Second New Zealand Collection of Bagpipe Music". Both collections are presented here
