(July 2011)

Old settings of piobaireachd providing a direct link back to the playing of the MacCrimmons of Skye, preserved by Simon Fraser in Australia.

The music on this CD is the Fraser settings in the Fraser style and is mainly a collection of incomplete tunes, chosen because they demonstrate an unusual movement, or a variation not heard elsewhere, or one with unconventional timing.

The Earl Of Ross's March * My King Has Landed In Moidart * Lament For Mary MacLeod * Clan Ranald's Salute * Glengarry's Lament * The Fairy Chanter (Ben Nevis' Salute) * Chisholm's Lament (MacIntosh's Banner) * The MacNab's Salute * The Battle Of Waternish * Donald MacLeod Of Greshornish's Lament * Lament For The Little Supper * Lament For MacSwan Of Roaig * Lochiel's Salute * Donald Gruamach's March * All The Men Paid Rent But Rory * Struan Robertson's Salute * The Wee Spree * Hugh Fraser Plays Mary's Praise.
