Corries - Flower of Scotland (2006) Retail CD
Traditional Scottish Folk
Firstly, with reference to Folksie's review I need to be slightly pedantic and say that folk music is generally defined as "music of the folk or of the people". As the Corries are Scottish and that their songs clearly have deep Scottish themes and lyrics to appeal to the Scottish market, they certainly adhere to this definition. This is to the extent the title track of this album, Flower of Scotland, has been adopted by the people of Scotland as their unofficial national anthem. Furthermore, the anti-English sentiment you complain about isn't so, simply a recollection of historical wars, alsomore… quite common in folk music. Finally, it is worth acknowledging that the Corries have also brought to the fore some historical events for Socts to be ashamed of, namely the infamous massacre of the Macdonalds by the Campbells in the song Massacre Of Glencoe (not on this album).As this album manages to rouse the spirits of a proud Scot, I give it five stars.
