http://membres.multimania.fr/corneymusers/dl/ABCTUNES.zip contains around 1400 abc files in "Highland Pipe" format, complete with gracenotes, for those who want to practice their ornamentation.
The "Highland Pipe" scale is effectively nine notes, from G through to A, but with sharpened C and F. If you change the key signature from K:HP to K:D in the file, it'll look more like it plays on a "normal" instrument.
If you can "play music as it's written" the tunes will then all work on the "G" Mountain Ocarina just by playing a C# where necessary.
If you prefer your tunes to be written "as played on a C instrument", simply use your ABC software to transpose down to G, then you've only got the F# to contend with.
Inevitably, in an assemblage of this size, there's be a few duplicates, some very similar, and the odd mistake, but it should keep you busy for a while  Wink

... however, if you go to the Internet Archive site at http://archive.org/web/web.php and enter the above link into the appropriate little box (don't duplicate the http:// part of the web-address), the file will magically appear  Cool
