The Bruce 700

This is a live recording at Celtic Connections 2015 of a commission by Stirling Council to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.

Composed, arranged and orchestrated by Allan MacDonald and Neil Johnstone.

The Bruce involved some of the best scottish musicianship from pipes to fiddles and everything in between – the Stirling and District Schools Band and the massed choirs of the Island of Lewis also appear.

Traditional tunes and song styles have been incorporated into the orchestral whole, so there is a pibroch and later a keening and lament.
