Hailed by both Gaels and non-Gaels, this album was the forerunner of a new generation of recordings by young Gaelic singers.

From the Isle of Lewis, Christine won many prizes at the Mod and the Pan Celtic Festival. She has become a highly regarded and sought after tutor in Gaelic song, and has travelled the world singing and teaching.

"A singer who sings in Gaelic and does it immaculately - tender and vulnerable without being limp." (Melody Music)

"Many of the songs will already be familiar to Gaels, but the crystal purity of Christine's voice ensures that each retain a freshness after innumerable hearings." (West Highland Free Press)
