Fama Clamosa (Mackenzie)

"Mackenzie's second disc of Gaelic song for Macmeanmna opens unconventionally with their own title track, which has a Latin refrain and a distinctly African lilt in the tune.

The sisters - Fiona, Eilidh and Gillian - revert to more customary business on a pleasing mixture of their own songs and contemporary arrangements of traditional Gaelic material, framed by discreet but emphatic accompaniments on keyboards, guitar, harp and percussion.

Their expressive harmony singing is delightful on all of this material, and nowhere more so than on Eilean Fraoich nam beann ard, a heartfelt closing tribute to their native Lewis."

Kenny Mathieson, The Scotsman
