"My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;

Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go."
Robert Burns

Australian composer Cam McAllister presents his through-composed four

part suite, Big Scottish Heart, for symphonic band. 

The piece is inspired by a fictional story about a rugged yet proud old Scottish

fisherman named Forbes who sets sail on a treacherous journey to France where he

ultimately falls in love with a beautiful younger French woman named Magdeleine.

But... the Highlands are in his heart and his heart is in the Highlands.
