Recorded in 2017, under the baton of the conductor at the time, Lisa MacNeil, the choir recorded a new album with music producer and multi-instrumentalist, Mick MacNeil. Due to COVID, the album was launched in July 2022.
The album includes a number of favourite arrangements including a Puirt à Beul set arranged by Sileas Sinclair, a few singalongs including ‘Tha mise gad ionndrainn a Ghràidh’, and the choir’s Lorn Shield winning piece in 2016 – ‘Loch na h-Òb’.
The album features a number of solo tracks from local Gold Mòd medallists – Maeve MacKinnon and Catriona MacNeil, as well as a beautiful new tune written by Lisa MacNeil, with Duncan Johnstone on the fiddle.
The choir would like to thank all who have supported the project in any way.
The album cover is a painting by chorister, Sarah Ann MacLeod.
Buy the album directly from Birnam as well as in local island outlets.
