Another lovely outing from the Battlefield Band, with a nice mixture of traditional tunes and originals — one of which, "The Beaches of St. Valery," is a tragic tale of those who did not make it home after the debacle at Dunkirk; the kick in this is that the song is based on a piece written for the wife of composer Chris Wood. Consistently expert (and enthusiastic) playing meshes with a careful approach to Scottish music to provide a splendid disc.
