Timber Timbre

The tunes are the finest Scotland has to offer: "John Roy Stewart" and "Achmore Loch" are beautiful, "The Sailor's Wife" is a jig which deserves to be widely known, and there's a fine set of Shetland reels fitted onto the pipes. Piper Rab Wallace also illustrates the difference in tone between the lowland pipes and the Scottish smallpipes, and as if that weren't enough he fits a pair of traditional Chinese tunes onto the limited smallpipe scale with breath-taking results. There are four songs, three in Scots Gaelic from Judith Peacock and one in Scots from guest James MacMillan. Two of them are from this century, but all are in a very traditional style. Judith has a light, pure voice which suits the sadder Gaelic songs perfectly, and the instrumental arrangements are suitably discreet. This is a very pleasant recording with some really interesting material .

Musicians: Peter Anderson (Scottish side-drum, bodhran, percussion); Annaliese Dagg (viola, fiddle); Stuart Eydmann (fiddle, concertina); Mark Hayward (fiddle); Eddie MacGuire (flute, piccolo, clarsach); Judith Peacock (clarsach, vocals); Rab Wallace (Lowland pipes, Scottish smallpipes); James MacMillan (vocals, whistle).
Media Reviews
The Whistlebinkies ,for those of you not familiar with their music , are the Scottish version of The Chieftains.

This is a very pleasant recording with some really interesting material . The playing throughout is impeccable and the instruments and voice are beautifully balanced . The pieces of music include a number of beautifully sung Gaelic songs including a very interesting working or waulking song from the Western Isles ; strathspeys ,jigs and reels and a number of newly composed piping tunes . Also included is a very unusual China set taken from music they arranged for a visit to China in 1991.
Rab Wallaces piping is good throughout and he uses a beautifully sounding set of small pipes . The very delicate sound produced by Rab here will enthrall all pipers .
