The sound of Scotland

Highland Cathedral is a popular melody for the Great Highland Bagpipe.

This melody was composed by German musicians Ulrich Roever and Michael Korb in 1982 for a Highland games held in Germany. It has been proposed as the Scottish national anthem to replace unofficial anthems Scotland the Brave and/or Flower of Scotland.

It has subsequently undergone various orchestrations and had lyrics added in English and in Scottish Gaelic. These include the verse: Rise, Caledonia, let your voices ring/In this Highland Cathedral of our God and King./Whom, joy and liberty, to all, will bring./Come; let your heart, with love and courage, sing.

Massively powerful piece of music, but as the lyrics are very strongly Christian, the chances of the neo-Marxist SNP choosing it as an anthem are very small indeed!

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!
