A beautiful collection of songs, 'Only a Singing Bird' features Michael Headís best-known works, 'The Ships of Arcady' and 'The Little Road to Bethlehem', as well as his beautifully-imagined, nostalgic song-cycle, 'Snowbirds'.

The National Youth Choir of Scotland's National Girls Choir is joined by its patron and world-renowned mezzo soprano, Karen Cargill for this new recording.


a fruitful vehicle for showcasing what the Girls Choir of the National Youth Choir of Scotland is capable of. Whatís striking is how evenly matched in quality the different voice parts are when they divide in the more complex writing Ö All this betokens preparation of the highest quality, for which NYCoS artistic director Christopher Bell, whose conducting is exemplary, takes much credit.  Terry Blain
