A simple and evocative setting of a carol from Eriskay, an island in the Outer Hebrides.
Written in 1986 for the choir of Aberdeen College of Education, it immediately became popular and has since been performed many times and in several countries.
It has also been recorded on CD by 'Cappella Nova'. The Gaelic text is for soloist only, the chorus providing an atmospheric vocalised accompaniment and a simple 'Alleluia' refrain. [The composer's mother was born in Martin's Ferry, Ohio!]
