This album has proved to be hugely popular and is a Greentrax All Time Top Seller.
Songs by female vocalists from the Greentrax back catalogue.
Each song has the theme of love and reflection, resulting in an album of very powerful songs, old and new, superbly interpreted by some of Scotland’s finest Gaelic and Scots women singers.
From Cathy-Ann MacPhee’s stunning version of the Gaelic rallying song Canan Nan Gaidheal, to Gill Bowman’s version of Auld Lang Syne (set to the original Burns melody), this album is full of gems.
The Greentrax Recordings budget label (Celtic Collections) tracks were selected from the rich Greentrax back catalogue, plus some albums specially recorded for the Series. These are quality recordings of top Scottish artists at a bargain price. A great buy for tourists and discerning collectors alike.
“The fourteen tracks on the recording are of the highest standard in both the singing and the musicianship…”
