Description

(June 2005 re-release of earlier recordings)

Early in 1985 Battlefield Band, Alison Kinnaird and Robin Morton were asked to prepare and record music for a television series about the work of the National Trust for Scotland, an organisation which owns and protects a wide range of the natural and man-made heritage.

The first album of soundtrack music proved so popular that Temple Records followed it with a second volume. A great deal of the music was specially written and arranged by the members of Battlefield Band and Alison Kinnaird.

CD1 - 13 tracks: The Sweet Maid Of Mull / MacLeod Of Mull * Frideray * Cro Cinn t-Saile / The Kilbarchan Weaver * Lady Haddo * The Silver Darlin's * The Duchess Of Gordon * The St Kilda Girls Lament / The St Kilda Wedding March * Anst'er Market / The East Neuk Of Fife * Brodick Castle * Dunkeld Steeple / Killiekrankie * Mo Run Gael Og * Glenfinnan Highland Gathering / Lady MacKenzie Of Gairloch / The Five Sisters * Held In Trust.

"This album is quite stunning - a beautifully controlled piece of work and a complete entity." (Taplas)

"Particularly effective, with rippling harp over the rest of the band... a fine piece of work - it warms the heart to see folk musicians spreading their wings." (Folk Roots)
