TOP 500 REVIEWERon October 27, 2010
Well, I'm going to add my voice to the chorus.

As I write, there are no musical samples available on Amazon; but I saw the glowing reviews. Then I read that Julie was Eamonn Doorley's fiancée, and I thought, OK, he probably plays on her album: I'll take a chance.

I couldn't be more happy. Her voice is glorious. The other musicians read like a cross-section of all that's best in folk music, but the accompaniments never overwhelm or compete with the vocals, as they sometimes did with (for instance) Sólas. The arrangements, in which I can definitely detect the John McCusker touch, are wonderful, and both the original lyrics and translations are provided. The recording is crystal clear.

Try this for a first approximation. Imagine Kate Rusby singing in Gaelic, with John McCusker and Danú backing her. If you think you would like the result, than this album is for you.

The total time is 43'06".
