Review: Continuing really from where the first volume left off. This collection of music continues Bear McCreary’s exploration of Scottish folk music, which is heavily featured in the hit TV series.
The collection starts with a beautifully performed extended version of ‘The Skye Boat Song’, which is performed by Raya Yarbrough.
Things then move on to ‘Fort William Rescue’ eventually wrapping up with ‘Setting Sail’, which is once again performed by Raya Yarbrough.
The collection also includes ‘An Fhìdeag Airgid,’ which is performed by Gillebrìde MacMillan and sounds like it was actually sang in a Celtic dialect, which I obviously didn’t get, but that didn’t take away from the listening experience.
In various interviews done over the years. Bear McCreary has often talked about his love of folk music. Particularly Scottish folk music, which he grew up around.
This collection of music along with the first volume, which we reviewed a few weeks back is testament to Bears love and respect for the music.
Weather you grew up with it or not. This music is still fantastic to listen to and does transport you to a more dangerous and romantic world.
I can’t really fault anything about this collection.
For those that haven’t seen the series yet. ‘Outlander’ is available on Amazon Prime.
- Great collection of music.
