Review

'a fascinating and continually changing landscape of sounds and imagery that instantly pleases the musical taste buds' --Sunday Business Post

**** 'For sheer beauty of sound and contemplative luxuriousness, this debut by the mixed-voice Choral Scholars of University College, Dublin is an altogether captivating experience. Lovers of elegantly crafted singing will find much to enjoy here in a survey of Irish and Scottish songs that also reaches across the Atlantic in the Appalachian-accented Black is the Colour of My True Love s Hair ... Vocal solos are pristinely realised, the ensemble sound gilded and glowing.' --Michael Quinn Classical Ear, 23rd March 2016

Blending folk voices with choral precision tight harmony isn t easy but Desmond Earley has a passionate stake in both and doesn t put a foot wrong here. --Brian Morton Choir & Organ, March/April 2016

Beautiful music sung well. Lovely songs, some familiar, some new. Songs from Ireland, and from other parts of the world. A mixture of melancholy and playful. Thoroughly recommended.

Beautifully sung compilation of Irish songs that are quite haunting in some of the tracks. Highly recommended album to take away after holidaying in the emerald isle.
