'Marie McLaughlin sings with warm tone, affection, humour and zest' (Gramophone)

'Marie McLaughlin's gleaming yet often dark-hued soprano takes to this music as to the bothy born; and Edinburgh-born Malcolm Martineau heels and toes it with great imaginative finesse, tuning in to the physical essence of each song, be it the springing heather tread of the high road and the low road, or the mesmeric oscillations of a lullaby from Barra' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Marie McLaughlin sings these songs in a clear, unpretentious soprano, evidently delighting in the texts, which she delivers in a pleasing, crystalline brogue. An exquisite disc' (International Record Review)

'McLaughlin sings with passionate intensity, and her voice has all the colors of the rainbow for these widely varying songs … an album to treasure' (Fanfare, USA)
