Scottish Fiddle Orchestra
Prince Of The Mists
[RECD484] - 3 in Stock
The concept of this overture is to tell in musical terms, the short history of the Rebellion of 1745 culminating in the last battle to be fought on British soil, Culloden in 1746. The music has been chosen either for its direct association with the incidents or for the place names relevant to the itinerary of the Prince and his 'Highland Army'. So far as possible music prevalent at the time has been used.
