Fingal's Cave (Staffa, Scotland)

While on vacation I had the good fortune to visit the small island Staffa off the Isle of Mull, which is entirely of volcanic origin. What makes it unique?….the incredible examples of columnar basalt of varying size, from huge vertical columns sporting a layer of non columnar basalt above to smaller examples epitomized in the small islet of Am Buchaille. This cave and area was an inspiration for Mendelssohn's concert overture "The Hebrides" and popularly known as "Fingal's Cave." William Picher provides the music for this short video, playing both organ and trumpet from his album Te Deum (Suite in D Major, IV March).
