AllMusic Review by

Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill's solo debut is an exquisitely crafted collection of traditional Irish songs of doomed love -- tunes like "A Mhaithrin Dhileas," "An Cailin Gaelach," and "Martha, the Flower of Sweet Strabane" all depict tales of heartbreak, loss, and unrequited romance, although Ní Dhomhnaill's luminous vocals ensure that the gloom never becomes too oppressive.
