Much of the material is drawn from the traditions of the Celtic lands - Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. Moonrakers also composes tunes and songs in the Celtic idiom.
Dai Woosman (Living Tradition magazine) : "This album just OOZES quality. The most pleasant of surprises. I doubt if I will encounter a better album all year."
Shire Folk Magazine (Southern Counties, UK) : "Superb musicianship, great voices. A good deal of care has gone into these arrangements; they're not rushed, and this simply adds to the beauty of the sound. "
Folk on Tap (national Folk Magazine, UK) : "This will remain on our turntable for a long time."
Rakes Progress (UK Folk Magazine) "The CD is full of fine performances from start to finish, with a thoughtful selection of songs and dance tunes from the Scottish and Irish traditions, arranged with complex textures of harp, flute and cittern. The production is also unusually rich for a folk CD with a warm generous sound that adds that final touch of class."
