Castles, Canticles and the Cadence of the Celts

By Leland Thomas Faegre


'Castles, Canticles and the Cadence of the Celts'

Description: This composition came to me as I was working on another track [currently in production] that lent itself to this transition. A part of the world that is rich in history, tradition and culture, its music perhaps being the most enriching.  Got Pipes?

Story Behind the Music: Forever attracted to pipes of any kind, and having married into one of the traditions found in the United Kingdom and Ireland, one never really leaves once you have experienced the history and culture.

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"

In addition, Art Channel is also available by the Neuf network in France.  From Wednesday 6th February 2008, Art Channel will also be available 24 hours a day on this network - channel 104.  French speaking viewers see here whilst English speaking viewers, can read more here.

"This work does a great job of creating the illusion of a huge group of musicians, although I suspect it may be only you doing everything. You certainly have all the skills and abilities of a first rate composer, arranger and orchestrator."

---Taxi, January 21, 2005

"...impressively authentic; great piping and snare drumming...and...a strong Celtic flavor..."

---Taxi, October 30, 2005

"Excellent work...which accurately summon a slightly different flavor that is associated with "military" music.  I found lots to enjoy...the bagpipe extravaganza...I take it you enjoy the alliterations...Bagpipes summon the images of troops marching, etc. very effectively, as does the martial snare drum part. Go, Braveheart!"

---Taxi, July 7, 2006

"...Again, great intro. I really like the snare press rolls and pipes..."

Taxi, July 14, 2006

"...I am always impressed with your talent and ability to generate interesting and authentic sounds and unusual and engaging arrangements...Good, authentic melody and sounds. Bagpipes sounds very realistic. Again, good build in the arrangement, keeping it interesting straight through."
