Notes & Reviews:

The Scottish folksong repertoire is quite rich. The fusion of Celtic and Lowland cultures, the nation's troubled history and an irreverent sense of fun mark many of the songs. What binds together these songs is the beauty of the melodies and the skill with which lyricists like Burns could match new or re-modeled words to traditional tunes. A selection of these are sung here by soprano Marie McLaughlin.

'Marie McLaughlin's gleaming yet often dark-hued soprano takes to this music as to the bothy born; and Edinburgh-born Malcolm Martineau heels and toes it with great imaginative finesse, tuning in to the physical essence of each song, be it the springing heather tread of the high road and the low road, or the mesmeric oscillations of a lullaby from Barra.' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Marie McLaughlin sings with warm tone, affection, humour and zest' (Gramophone)

'McLaughlin sings with passionate intensity, and her voice has all the colors of the rainbow for these widely varying songs ... an album to treasure' (Fanfare, USA)

'Marie McLaughlin sings these songs in a clear, unpretentious soprano, evidently delighting in the texts, which she delivers in a pleasing, crystalline brogue. An exquisite disc' (International Record Review)
