This is probably my favorite of Jean Redpath's CD's. Her sweet, lovely voice shines through on each of the songs. The songs are varied, some traditional, some more recent, all dealing with leavings or departures of one variety or another. Not a CD to pick you up when you're down - many of the songs are a little melancholy, but a wonderful disc for a rainy afternoon or a quiet evening.

Jean Redpath really has a knack for putting over a song, with simple accompaniment or even a cappella. This CD has as a theme the separation of people from their native places, and their relationships with the new places, as told simply with folk songs. It is sweet but not maudlin, solid but not large. It is excellent.

I bought this CD after reading Ms.Redpath's obituary in the New York Times very recently. I was not familiar with her music, but am an ardent lover of folk music. This is a charmingly beautiful collection of songs. Her voice is like honey. I am very happy with this purchase and will buy more Jean Redpath music. May she rest in peace.

I've always enjoyed Ms. Redpath's efforts to showcase the traditional music of the Scots. Here she broadens her frame to include both Scots and others who have "left the land" to make their way to Canada. A deep sense of an immigrant's heart is here present, and poignant.
