Product Description

Product Description

It's 35 years since this elite army regiment had a NUMBER 1 single with Amazing Grace. 'Spirit of the Glen' captures the epic, beautiful music of the Scottish Highlands and includes the uplifting 'Mull of Kintyre' (featuring Will Martin), the powerful theme from 'Last of the Mohicans', a stunning new version of 'Amazing Grace' and many more.

Product Description

The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards is Scotlands senior regiment and her only regular cavalry. The band members, as well as being trained musicians, are all Army soldiers who crew tanks and have served two tours of duty in Iraq. The album, both Scots and classical tunes, is a tribute to the dedication and talent of this group of military pipers. While they are first and foremost soldiers, the music on Spirit of the Glen is a heart-warming and beautiful demonstration of the incredibly powerful and emotive sound of bagpipe music. Some album highlights: the McCartney popularized #1 single, Mull of Kintyre, Amazing Grace 2007, a reworking of Rod Stewarts `Sailing, and film themes Dances with Wolves & The Last of the Mohicans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning - an absolute must have 2 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is truly one of the most emotive, ground breaking CDs of this year, taking tradtional highland bagpiping and putting it firmly into the 21st Century. Even the diehard traditionalists will have to love this. The combination of the emotion conjured up by the pipes and the mellifluous voices of Will Martin et al make this just such a magnificent recording. Essential listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly beautiful and original record 29 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
The up to date production,arrangements and sound of this recording of The Royal Scots Dragoon Gaurds make this a thrilling and moving listening experience; it is a truely heart-felt and beautiful record from beginning to end.
The pipes feature on all tracks and are brilliantly blended into the fabulous arrangements. Even those who might not normally be hard core pipe fans will love this record ! This is A once In A Lifetime Record.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best is already out there 31 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a top class album recorded by some of the most talented and versatile men in the British Army. They are each serving tank soldiers first, and this is what they do in their spare time.

If you think Spirit of the Glen is good then look for Parallel Tracks released in 2002 by the same band, to hear the raw power of piping at its innovative best. Spirit of the Glen is for your Living Room, Parallel Tracks is for your car - and every car should have one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Im no musicial expert 7 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
The spirit of the glen is one of the most up lifting and compilations that I ever listened to in my 50 odd years of existence. After an horrid day at work to come home and pour a malt, then be transported to Edinburgh Castle, is pure magic. I love the pipes any way and no I am not a Scot, but if I were I would be so proud that my country could produce such fine talent as such in those fine men. No Im no expert as professed by some who have placed reviews, and every one is entitled to their opinion, but music is the food of gods, and should be seen for it's beauty, not for the recipe. If by being an expert, makes you not appreciate such a lovely sound then I wish to remain ignorant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, inspirational and enchanting!!! 9 Dec 2007
By Bomber
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the best album by a military band I have ever heard! Their previous album "Highland Cathedral" was breathtaking, but Spirit of the Glen is something else!

Anyone who gives this a negative clearly has no taste in this kind of music so shouldn't buy it in the first place!

A must have album for those who appreciate the UK armed forces and the sound of the bagpipes!
