Freedom in the Isles continues this season's emphasis on different countries in Europe and their quests for freedom. Glenn Miller worked very hard to get himself a position in WWII and brought a type of music to the British Isles that was inspiring as well as new and different, i.e., In the Mood. Hymn of the Highlands highlights a restlessness in Scotland, especially with Dundonnel
