Released by Rounder in 2004.
The second tune on track eight should be ‘The Cordal’.
Re: On Christmas Night
5 years later, and nobody’s talkin’, except "Gonzo".
This CD turns up in a 3-CD "Celtic Christmas" set along with CDs by a group called "Beltane" and I think Canadian musician John McDermott.
As "Christmas CDs" go, it’s probably as good as you’ll get. It does seem a bit odd to me to record perfectly good versions of some of these classic Christmas carols and then graft on a set of totally unrelated tunes with no apparent justification.
Whatever - the singing and playing is very good. We’ll probably use a few tracks from this in our Aberdeen-based community radio programme in the next few weeks leading up to Christmas. It will be worth a listen :)
