We are delighted to announce our debut CD, "Full of the Highland Humours", released this month on the EM Records label.
The disc celebrates the immense success Scottish music enjoyed in eighteenth-century London: highlights include rarely recorded works by James Oswald, a highly successful Scottish composer who made London his ‘home from home’ in the 1740s, sparkling trio sonatas by Giuseppe Sammartini, a close colleague of Oswald’s, and by their undeservedly ignored contemporary, Francesco Geminiani, music by Thomas Erskine, Sixth Earl of Kellie, a talented aristocrat whose enthusiasm for local music-making in Fife earned him the nickname ‘Fiddler Tam’, and by Robert Bremner, an enterprising Scottish publisher and composer whose influence in London and Edinburgh helped to cement the long-held musical relationship between the capital and Scotland itself.
More details and a full track listing are available at our online store, where you can now buy the disc for the princely sum of £14,99 + P&P.
Our launch event at the English Music Festival on 12th November was a wonderful and happy occasion; thank-you to all those supporters who attended our reception and concert. We were so delighted to see you all, many of you for the first time in person after we had got to know you online. We are truly grateful to all those who supported our crowdfunding campaign; without you we could have never brought "Full of the Highland Humours" into the world. See you again soon!
