(April 2000) 7 tracks: Too Long In This Condition (Roderick MacLeod) * The Old Woman's Lullaby (Robert Wallace) * Hioemtra Haentra (Barnaby Brown) * Glengarry's March (Allan MacDonald) * The Fingerlock (William MacDonald) * Hihorodo Hiharara (Barnaby Brown) * Lament For Hugh (William McCallum).

Featuring William MacCallum, Barnaby Brown, Allan MacDonald, Roderick MacLeod, William MacDonald and Robert Wallace.

The seven pibroch included on this album were recorded live on the evening of 30th August 1999 during a memorable concert devoted to the music of the Highland pipe, the Pìob Mhòr.

The concert was held in Edinburgh University's Reid Hall, which has an excellent acoustic for pipe music, and was part of a wider series promoted by the Edinburgh International Festival under the banner of Ceòl na Pìoba, 'Music Of The Pipes'.

Pibroch devotees will find plenty here to surprise them, from Willie McCallum's stately rendition of the little-heard 'Lament for Hugh', to Allan MacDonald's fiery interpretation of 'Cill Chriosd, 'Glengarry's March'. In the two tunes from the Campbell Canntaireachd we have music which has not been heard in public for some 200 years, played by Barnaby Brown in period style on a reproduction 18th century instrument made of Scottish almondwood with horn mounts.

For those who are new to pibroch, this recording should serve as a useful introduction to one of Gaeldom's most enduring art forms, played by pipers who are masters of both the music and the instrument.
