Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Countertenor Andreas Scholl performs 17 timeless folk songs from England, Ireland and America in lush new arrangements. The arrangements focus heavily on the strings, creating a background of cinematic richness for Scholl's master storytelling. The sources date back as far as 14th century England and as recent as 19th century America.

bbc.co.uk - Matthew Shorter
I found myself haunted by the limpid beauty of these songs and the crystalline balance of Andreas Scholl's counter-tenor with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra's understated accompaniments...the commitment of Scholl and arranger and producer Craig Leon was palpable and infectious...at its best this curious but heartfelt disc is spine-tingling.
