Korb & Roever - Highland Cathedral - organ
Korb & Roever - Highland Cathedral - organProduct code: 14096
Far from being a traditional Scottish melody, "Highland Cathedral" was written in 1982 by German composers Michael Korb and Uli Roever, simply because they wanted to compose a tune for pipes, and embraced the atmosphere, legends and folklore of Scotland - a romantic, nostalgic evocation of something that never was, but has gone on to achieve an iconic status in the popular music of Scotland. It has become a very popular piece for brass bands in the past few years.
This publication contains two organ arrangements by Antony Baldwin, both with pedals, the latter being a simpler treatment based on a more straightforward harmonic scheme, thus affording all organists the opportunity to enjoy playing this stirring melody.
