Notes and Editorial Reviews

Martyn Bennett was one of Scotland’s most innovative musicians, combining the traditional and modern, the local and international. A long-planned collaboration with Mr McFall’s Chamber was never realised during his tragically short lifetime. For their second disc with Delphian, Robert McFall has put together a programme of his own sympathetic arrangements of Martyn’s music alongside original works by Fraser Fifield, another of Scotland’s virtuosic musical innovators. The premiere recording of Martyn’s ‘Piece’ epitomises his sophisticated mastery of fusion.

‘[Bennett] caused a sensation – and much controversy – in british folk music … Scottish bagpipe and fiddle music with techno beats ’
— Guardian obituary, February

‘I believe the group – in what it does, and in what it represents – is potentially the most important single development on the Scottish musical scene in a long time'
— Michael Tumelty, The Herald, on Mr McFall’s Chamber
