The performances captured here are very powerful and are evidence of Siân's experience and understanding of traditional songs. Apart from track 4 and track 10, all the songs are traditional. They are songs that Siân is very familiar with and as is evident from the performances, songs that are close to her heart. The title for the album came quite early in the recording stage. The original idea was to create an album which was to be pure in the sense that there were to be no other instruments added to the original sound of harp and voice. And also pure in the fact that the songs are rendered in a thoroughly native Welsh style. This is the sound that Siân produces in her live solo performances. This is a very atmospheric album, with plenty of fuel for the imagination as old truths are carried perfectly to the listener on time tested melodies. As the sentence written on the back cover of the album reads, "The spellbinding harp and voice of Siân James perfectly define Celtic emotions in this collection of beautiful traditional songs".

I have always had a rather fraught relationship with time, and despite my best efforts, I have to admit that it does, all too often, get the better of me! And so, it is with shock and awe that I realise that it is six years since I last released an album, and it really only feels like yesterday when we were rushing to finish Y Ferch o Bedlam ready for Christmas 2005! They have been busy years, with life offering me many avenues to explore both creatively and emotionally. Thanks to those life experiences, both directly and indirectly, new songs and compositions as well as arrangements of some traditional songs have come into my life. This album is therefore a record of those songs and even though there is’nt a theme as such to the album, what does seem to meander through like a silver thread, is my love of music and its importance in my life.

"The last two years have been invaluable for me in my quest to learn from life's experiences. The songs I sing on this album deal with all the trials and tribulations of life; love and heartbreak, sickness and happiness, birth and death. These songs are a true reflection of our lives on this earth."
