Reviews

"This is a sensitively crafted arrangement of the Scottish folk song which recounts the escape of, "Bonnie Prince Charlie" to the Isle of Skye after the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Simple and elegant in its conception, Chilcott uses a variety of textures in the choir - monophonic at first, becoming 3pt. homophonic, followed by imitative part-writing. Throughout, a gently rocking piano accompaniment conveys the motion of the sea, moving easily between a feel of 2 and 3. Made widely popular in recent memory by recordings including those of Roger Whittaker and Des O'Connor, Tom Jones, Sting, and Julian Lloyd Webber, it has enjoyed new popularity by audiences as the theme for the television series, The Outlanders."
