Description
At the age of 70, Edinburgh's Trevor Morrison decided it was finally time to record the songs he learned in his youth from a former resident of the outlying Scottish archipelago St. Kilda, which was deserted as of 1930. And we're so glad he did; these delicate piano works rank as some of the most gorgeously nostalgic music we've heard in a long time. Here Morrison performs such songs as "Hirta," "Soay," "Levenish," "Boreray," and "Stac Lee" on piano, while the pieces also appear sensitively arranged for strings by James MacMillan, Rebecca Dale, and others, and "Dłn" features the exquisite voice of folksinger Julie Fowlis. Morrison died in 2012, but this disc quickly went to the top of the classical charts in the UK; it has the unusual distinction of being the fastest-selling posthumous recording by a debut artist.
