This is a powerful album of pure and unaccompanied traditional Scottish Gaelic song by Christine Primrose.

She is widely recognised and acknowledged as one of the great singers of her generation with a spectacular musical heritage.

Over three decades on from her groundbreaking debut release, the cultural landscape and personal timing is right for this solo recording of clarity, poignancy and depth from a remarkable and mature voice.

Laid bare and given space to breathe and speak, the emotion and feeling in this work make a connection that transcends language. These are songs of love and loss, presented in their most pure form; unaccompanied, vulnerable and beautiful.

This release is an important milestone in the career of an increasingly important artist and singer, stripped back to basics and reflecting her earliest and deepest sense of what Gaelic song is and should be.

"a masterpiece...every note and every syllable here is a note of grace." Aonghas Padraig Caimbeul
