(1998) 9 tracks: Oran Do Loch Iall * Oran Air Brith A Phrionnsa Tearlaich * Oran Eile Don Phrionnsa * An Fhideag Airgid * Alasdair's Tune * Clo Mhic Ille Mhicheil * Mo Run Gael Og * Smuladh Mi's Mi Air Maineol * Gaelic Psalm Theme.

The beautiful voice of Karen Matheson, and the contemporary Celtic music of Capercaillie. Tracks taken from the BBC Scotland film Raising The Standard, about the Jacobite Rising of 1745, and drawing strongly from songs written at the time.

Capercaillie were filmed overnight for the specially commissioned television programme From Dusk Till Dawn With Glenfinnan, which marked the 250th anniversary of Bonnie Prince Charlie's uprising. It was filmed at Glenfinnan, where the standard was raised on the 11th August, 1745.

These songs retrace the steps of those who came down from the mountains 250 years ago to follow Prince Charles Edward Stewart. Despite the attempted annihilation of a culture and a people, Gaelic endures.

Previously only available through the Capercaillie fan club.
