Default The Bruce700 CD

This is a live recording, from Celtic Connections 2015 of a 45 minute piece of a commission in 2014 in memory of King Robert of Bruce who finally became King of Scotland following the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. Instruments are the great bagpipes in A and Bb, small pipes, border pipes, harp, whistle, fiddle, cello, percussion and vocals.
It starts with the unexpurgated version of the Unjust Incarceration.
Hope you enjoy it.....

Thanks! I just had dinner with the Baron of Bannockburn and will have this now on hand when he comes over to the house next month.

This is a really wonderful recording, symphonic composition made by people who really understand our instrument and tradition.
