"I was brought up in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and while writing this piece I lived in a little nest of a flat, high up, right next to the castle. I have drawn inspiration from various locations, architecture, festivals, but most of all from people I've met through my musical life, such as Edinburgh's famous Sandy Bell's pub..." (Anna-Wendy Stevenson)

"Her music is never glib, showy nor shallow, but is the expression of a young woman in love with, and at home in culture - in the poetry, art and music of Scotland. Great taste and superlative technique flow together in her playing. Whether in a classical ensemble or traditional folk group, she is recognised as having a rare gift..." (Norman Chalmers)

"This is a rich, seriously wrought, contemporary composition, albeit rooted in the joy of traditional form, beautifully performed by the cream of Scottish instrumentalists." (The Scotsman)
