Reviews

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

'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)
A traditional Scottish ballad telling a traditional tale of gentility tamed. The comprehensible words relate the narrative, the others are picturesque vocables meaning little or much according to inflection.

from notes by John Currie 2000
