Overview

A sweeping, memorable score that salts in enough Scottish instrumentation to evoke the subject of the film without turning the whole production into a cheap parody. The main theme is a grandly melancholic effort that stands up to the periodic restatements throughout the disc, while Karen Matheson's vocal contributions do an excellent job of mood-setting.
