All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill was a charter member of the Bothy Band in the 1970s and later played for Touchstone and Nightnoise. Her sister Maighread sings with Dónal Lunny's band Coolfin, and Lunny contributes guitar, bouzouki, arrangements, and production on this album of traditional Irish songs. The result of this three-way collaboration is striking, if not surprising, in its loveliness; the songs are mostly of the sweetly despairing type so familiar to lovers of Irish music: "Liostáil Mé le Sáirsint" is the lament of a young conscriptee who, despite the luxuries of his new life overseas, yearns for the Old Sod; "Spanish Lady," with its mysterious numerical chorus, is a ...

Her sister Maighread sings with Dónal Lunny's band Coolfin, and Lunny contributes guitar, bouzouki, arrangements, and production on this album of traditional Irish songs. The result of this three-way collaboration is striking, if not surprising, in its loveliness; the songs are mostly of the sweetly despairing type so familiar to lovers of Irish music: "Liostáil Mé le Sáirsint" is the lament of a young conscriptee who, despite the luxuries of his new life overseas, yearns for the Old Sod; "Spanish Lady," with its mysterious numerical chorus, is a reflection on the treachery of fortune and the perfidy of womankind; "Foireann an Bháid" is one more in a long line of laments for young fishermen lost at sea. On the brighter side are a whimsical ode to an especially yummy variety of whitefish and "The Banks of Claudy," in which a young swain returns from the war in disguise to test the fidelity of his lover; she passes the test and they live, presumably, happily ever after. Or not -- there's probably a sadder song out there about whatever became of them afterward. The arrangements of these songs are modern, but tastefully so, and the Ní Dhomhnaill sisters' voices are consistently beautiful whether solo or blended. Highly recommended.

    A Rare Opportunity

    Triona and Maighread ni Dhomnaill hail from one of Ireland's premiere musical families. Both have an illustrious recording career, yet there have been few opportunities to hear them together on disc. This CD, which unites them with that doyen of the Irish traditional scene, Donal Lunny, is a rare opportunity to enjoy some of the finest talent Ireland has produced. Each track, slow air or rollicking ballad, is a gem. Their voices are mature and beautiful, and the instrumental backing is excellent. The CD is also a testament to their strength as a family unit. The liner notes feature fading photoes of the O'Domhnaill family on summer outings, and the track listings point out which aunt, cousin or grannie taught them the song. Standout tracks include ''Spanish Lady'' and the uproarious ''Nil se na la''. Highly recommended.
