There is a wonderful sweetness and diversity in this jewel of fourteen songs, presented together for the first time by Síle. Sung in her native tongue, some are songs she heard by the fireside as a young girl in Baile an tSléibhe, which echo her heritage and her homeplace – songs like ‘An Draighneán Donn’, ‘Brídín Bhéasaigh’ and ‘Casadh an tSúgáin’, bringing the likes of Antaine Ó Domhnaill, Finín Ó Connluain and Pádhraic Ó Ciardha to mind. This collection is enriched by a store of other songs she learned after leaving home and in school, as both teacher and student and are sure to be affectionately remembered by all who call Ireland home. – Meaití Jó Shéamuis, 29 May, 2009.
