Gaelic choir celebrates with album

A choir from Argyll, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012, has marked the occasion by recording the first album produced by a male voice Gaelic choir.

Còisir Ceann an Tuirc – translated as The Boar's Head Choir – takes its name from the crest of the Clan Campbell, which has its seat at Inveraray Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll.

Four of the 14 songs on Deich Bliadhna (Ten Years) were recorded within the castle, by permission of the present duke who is a supporter of the choir.

The rest of the songs were recorded in Oban.
