Three years in the making and featuring many of Scotland’s most celebrated singers, this album demonstrates the richness and diversity of the Gaelic song tradition, focusing on womens’ part in the creation of its poetry and song.

Each singer has contributed a song of her particular choice. Extensive sleeve notes serve to provide fascinating insights into the background of both singers and song alike.
