For many years, Irene Drummond has been a leading exponent of contemporary song in Scotland. With her partner Iain Burnside - peerless in this music - she offers a fascinating snapshot of her repertoire on this recording. From the rarified sparseness of James MacMillan, to the sustained luminosity of Paul Mealor, whose music featured in the Royal Wedding, and the emotionally charged dramatic outbursts of John McLeod, The Shadow Side explores a world of half-lights and visceral intensity.
