Notes & Reviews:

This project was conceived by the performers to celebrate the compelling sonorities created by blending voice and Medieval fiddles, which can closely follow and even imitate the human voice when played by a master fiddler. Repertoire for this combination is not focused on any one composer, theme or geographic region and instead is a compilation of the performer's favorites. The passion and spontaneity of these performances on medieval fiddles, coupled with the artists unwavering commitment to getting the most out of these more primitive instruments is evident throughout this delightful new disc.

'In every respect this CD is an utter delight. The music is charming, the performances infectious, the recording is simply outstanding and the booklet complete with full texts and translations into modern English, is a real pleasure to read ... this disc is a source of unreserved pleasure' (International Record Review)

'The outstanding CD of the month' (Early Music Review)

'The vivid ambience of the recordings, the quality of the chosen compositions, the incisive, animated, full-toned precision of the fiddle playing and performances by Bott make for 62 minutes of pure pleasure ... These performances must rank amongst Bott's best (and that's saying something) ' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Delectable is just about the right word for this sequence of pieces sung by Catherine Bott, with and without the fiddles of Pavlo Beznosiuk and Mark Levy. ... The simplicity and spontaneity of the pared-down and often improvisatory approach enormously enhances the emotional impact of the music, and brings the listener extraordinarily close to the characters whose deepest feelings are being voiced' (Daily Telegraph)

'a sublime survey of music and textual conceits from a remote yet immediately communicative past ... soprano and string players wear their classical training lightly, catching the folk flavour of this beguiling repertoire' (Classic FM Magazine)

We had to wait five years for its release. Believe me, it was worth the wait. Hear this haunting music' (Fanfare, USA)

'Charmingly and effectively done, it is well worth hearing' (Scotland on Sunday)

'This is some of the most elegant singing I have heard and certainly some of the best fiddle playing now available ... it is an excellent single-disc anthology of medieval song' (American Record Guide)
