Product Information

"This CD is a masterpiece. A major part of its virtue is that it gives us an hour of pure, unaccompanied Gaelic singing. The voice and the words are everything, and Christine Primrose delivers them to us here with depth and poignancy as well as grace and clarity. Nothing is over-dramatised: the words of every song are given space to speak the dignity of their own existence. "She gives a beautiful rendition of 'This an Smeòrach as t-Earrach' which I think will become the classic version of that great song, and a gorgeously haunting version of 'O mo cheist am Fear Bàn'. These and all the songs on this CD have not just a wonderful clarity of diction but a clarity of emotion- here is a true singer of Seann Nòs, who keeps true to the song. "Unaccompanied singing is a vulnerable art that takes courage as well as technique. Christine delivers that great art here without any striving after effect, but with a maturity that is both moving and impressive. Some say that seann nòs singing is especially recognised by its grace notes. Every song here is a note of grace. - Aonghas Padraig Caimbeul, Isle of Skye
