The landscapes of Scotland, its myths, legends and heroes, are recalled and lamented in two atmospheric programmes of powerful music for pipes, clarsach, voices and instruments.
MacCrimmon s Lament
O'er Coolin's face the night is creeping, The banshee's wail is round us sweeping; Blue eyes in Duin are dim with weeping, Since thou art gone and ne'er returnest.
No more, no more, no more returning; In peace nor in war is he returning; Till dawns the great day of doom and burning, MacCrimmon is home no more returning.
Hector the Hero Lament him, ye mountains of Ross-shire; Your tears be the dew and the rain; Ye forests and straths, let the sobbing winds Unburden your grief and pain. Lament him, ye warm-hearted clansmen, And mourn for a kinsman so true The pride of the Highlands, the valiant MacDonald Will never come back to you. O, wail for the mighty in battle, Loud lift ye the Coronach strain; For Hector, the Hero, of deathless fame, Will never come back again.
