Videos » Martyn Bennett - Mackay's Memoirs (Audio)

Purchase/stream Grit: 'Mackay's Memoirs', Martyn Bennett's composition for pipes, clarsach and orchestra was written for the students of the City of Edinburgh Music School and in honour of the late Dr. Kenneth A Mackay of Badenoch. A beautiful piece of work that was first performed in 1999 at the opening of the Scottish Parliament by Broughton High School. It was then recorded the morning after Martyn's death by the young people of Broughton High who never knew that Martyn had passed away, the news being kept back until after the recording. This is Martyn's final recorded work, which features on the re-issued Real World Gold CD edition of Grit, as well as on the digital release.
