    I have just received a request from a young lady regarding a piece of music. Unfortunately I can't help her, but wondered if any tMPer's could identify this music.

    Can anyone help on this one - look forward to your replies.

    The boffin is stumped!!!

    'Highland Cathedral' is used in Philip Sparkes 'Hymn Of The Highlands' - and appears in the first and last movements if I remember rightly ('Ardross Castle' and 'Dundonnell').

    It can be heard on the YBS CD of the same name.

    Is that any help?

    You could also contact Kneller Hall, as it is a piece regularly played by military bands with (shock and loads of horror!!!) bagpipes :(

    There is at least one version for brass band and bagpipes, as Govan SA band recorded it on their cd "Song of the Eternal".

    Alot of Scottish bands have Highland Cathedral in their library. It's arranged for band + pipes. It's on Whitburn's 'Victory' CD.

    I had a feeling it was on at least one other recording, but I'm posting from the library and couldn't check which one!

    There is also a different arrangement on Wantage's recent CD, featuring 3rd Cornet Graeme McPhee on Pipes.

    If you contact Mr Straightmute, he has done an arrangement of Highland Cathedral (complete with parts for horrible screechy tartan things). I'm sure he'll be persuaded to part with a set (for the appropriate fee of course)


    PS. David, the commission's a pint!!

    The arrangement on the Whitburn recording is listed as being arranged by Capt Geoffrey Kingston, and available from MCA Music.
