Kenneth McKellar's Book of Hymns. Kenneth McKellar cannot sing a sour note - his tone is always sweet and his intonation perfect. McKellar can sing heroically or scale his voice down to a whisper - either way his pitch is perfect. These two albums from 1964 and 1967 demonstrate McKellar's range both musically and interpretively. Scotland and Scotland's Heritage are brought together for the first time and published on compact disc for the first time. Of course, as the titles of the albums signify, these are mostly traditional Scottish songs with a few "composed" songs thrown in (.
