ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nothing's As Important As Clan And Family is an original and quite evocative Highland Gaelic Folk tune played on Bb tin whistle with string/synth accompaniment; this melody is extracted from a forthcoming musical or possibly a concept album that is at present in process and may possibly never be finished. (Well the first draft is finished, but that could mean anything) The concept album is the story of Robert Kirk, the author of the Secret Commonwealth of Elves Fauns and Fairies, a Seventeenth Century collection of Fairy Lore. But this is such a lovely melody, after I was playing the version in the school library on the notation program Finale on my computer and the librarian said she tried to find it using an app but the app couldn't identify it, I thought, well, that melody has at least one fan, I think I'll record a proper version. I created the string/synth backing first then soon afterwards asked Wendy Corner to come to my home studio and record the Bb Tin Whistle part. While Wendy is a flautist and quite an expert on the D tin whistle, she had actually never played the Bb Tin Whistle before; I had one and lent it to her (I have quite a few instruments lying around here and there). She played quite wonderfully on this track and I really think you will enjoy this piece of instrumental music, which captures the eternal spaciousness and ancient quality of the Scottish Highlands, and yet has the consoling aspect of thoughts of clan and family. (Andrew P Partington) (By the way I am not Scottish, I am actually Australian by birth, but with a high percentage of Scottish and Irish ancestry in my family tree )
