Available for the first time, The Royal Edinburgh Military tattoo presents a stunning collection of the very best of it's world famous Massed Pipes and Drums. This sensational compilation features many of the greatest ever home grown and International Pipe Bands to grace Edinburgh's Castle Esplanade.
This special DVD acknowledges the military traditions of piping and drumming. It captures unforgettable Tattoo moments such as Highland Cathedral, Skye Boat Song, Caledonia, auld lang Syne and highlights the elegance of the Tattoo Highland Dancers and the haunting sound of the Lone Piper. We pay tribute to the 'voice of the tattoo' Tom Fleming who sadly passed away in 2010. His television and DVD commentary, over more than 40 years has helped emphasise the Edinburgh Tattoo's place as the foremost Military Tattoo in the world. In honour of his memory, we leave the last words to him at the March Out of the Massed Pipes and Drums. "Who would not follow them cheerfully down the cobbles of the Royal Mile and back to the barracks, when you hear them play The Black Bear? Thanks to you, wherever in the world you have been watching. This is Tom Fleming at Edinburgh Castle saying until another year. Go well."
