AllMusic Review by

A little over-sentimental, but with an admirable honesty and melancholic integrity, McDermott drapes his vibrant tenor over the string quartet, harp, piano, tin whistle, and English horn backing. Tracks such as "Ave Maria," drawn from his school choir days, sit with trad Christmas numbers and more contemporary pieces like Murray McLauchlan's "Old Tin Star."
