I didn’t intend to bring an artist back on for a second time so soon into the series but this tune and the performance moved me hugely.
Hector the Hero Jenna Reid with Aly Bain
Initially I thought, from its title, that this was a modern tune but it was written by the great Scott Skinner in 1903 following the death of his friend, Major-General Hector McDonald. The background to Hector and his death can be found here and here.
Listen and be moved by this lament.
