Conductor Score & Parts
MacPherson's Lament is a delightful Scottish air arranged by Bob Phillips and Dean Marshall, the music director of the world famous fiddle group, Barrage. Legend has it that MacPherson went to his death playing this hauntingly beautiful tune on his fiddle. Beginning with the cellos and basses, the melody is passed around throughout the orchestra while accompanied by a variety of figures that build in intensity.
