The 13th annual pipes|drums New Year’s Honours!

2014 Recording of the Year

Ascension – Inveraray & District

The double CD of the band’s 2013 Pre-World’s Concert was released at the very end of last year, so it had to be considered for 2014. Awarded a perfect five gracenotes in the pipes|drums review, Ascension is one of the great pipe band recordings of all time.

Also considered:

  • Morenn Xavier Boderiou, with Sylvain Barou and Jacques Pellen – a modern and adventurous take on the antique music of the Highland pipe, with a certain Breton flair made Boderiou’s CD a clever stand-out.


  1. Always love this year end wrap and seeing the best recognised. Glad that it is not always all about prizes won but also about other accomplishments to piping and drumming. Well done all!!!
