reviews September Days by Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner

Harmonisers Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner display strong, clear voices and are able to blend without overpowering the melody they sing, nor the words. 'So What?' you might say. Well many a harmonising group falls down on these very things, thereby robbing the listener and devaluing the song. Not so Heraud & Turner.

On this, their third album they sing self-written songs as well as some not heard so much nowadays traditional ones, l ike Twa Corbies and the lovely Reres Hill. Particularly strong is The Bonny Irish Maid, a gem of a love song. The jauntily amusing Pheromones is one of their own and it's a cracker. Add the names of these two ladies to your 'must hear' list.
