I concur.. It's really good..
If ye like Baird's stuff you'll definitely dig this album..

It's a little bit more reserved and traditional than the other stuff I've heard from her.. but
all in good health.. a great addition for autumns in general :)

Many thanks!

An extremely beautiful selection of music performed by women of the highest talent. The sound is acoustic and very intimate, and though some or many of the songs will be familiar to fans of traditional British folk music, the arrangements highlight the exceptional voices of the singers and their subtle understanding of the songs.
It is ultimately a heartening album as the essential melancholy of the songs is largely balanced by the reassuring warmth and intelligence of the performances.

Thank you to Graaf for the link.
