The Lost Songs of St. Kilda, an album of songs from a remote Scottish island kept alive by a man in a care home who performs on the album, has hit #1 on the iTunes and Amazon Classical chart, as well as reaching #9 on the Amazon overall charts in the US.  In connection with this project and for the first time ever, a concert has taken place on St Kilda – the deserted Scottish island dubbed ‘the Edge of the World'.  Internationally-renowned composer Sir James MacMillan performed the ‘Lost Songs of St Kilda' in front of a handful of people who endured an eight-hour boat trip from Skye to be there.  It is the first time music has been heard on St Kilda since its evacuation in 1930.
