10:57 AM Ceolbeg “The Sleeping Tune” from An Unfair Dance on Greentrax Recordings

This song commemorates the loss of a ship carrying troops returning to the island of Lewis from the WWI battlefields of Europe, only to founder on rocks in the night just before reaching the harbor. Most of the soldiers died, within sight of home. The song at the end is “Eilean Fraoch” (Heather Island), the unofficial anthem of Lewis.
