Notes & Reviews:

These collaborations between noted Edinburghians Alexander McCall Smith and Tom Cunningham appear on disc here for the first time in a program of Scottish poetry settings by some of today's leading composers. From the ethereal tenderness of Cunningham's Lullaby to the muscular angularity of Ronald Stevenson's Medieval Scottish Triptych, Laudibus responds with affection and athleticism to the expert direction of UK choral doyen, Mike Brewer.
