Here’s music from Ireland in a story from Norse times with the timing of the tide. Here’s music from Orkney with Kirkwall City Pipe Band, joined on Broad Street by the Willowburn Valley Stompers and the visiting group Kakatsitsi. And here too from Orkney are Three in a Bar.
We go into St Magnus Cathedral to hear the organ. And we go to rackwick in Hoy to hear the voices of George Mackay Brown and Peter Maxwell Davies in the 1982 BBC Radio Scotland programme The Valley by the Sea.
We go to the house in Galloway of the physicist James Clark Maxwell to walk on his favourite paths and hear music specially composed for him, and to hear about the dance Maxwell’s Waves.
We have songs from Slovenia and songs from Scotland.
