More information

Shirley Erena Murray commented, in an interview for Different Voices (Whitsun 2008), on the appropriateness of setting some of her texts to Scottish folk melodies such as here.

"On the maternal side of my family, my grandfather came from Inverness and on the paternal, my great-grandparents from Ullapool, on Loch Broom.  I was brought up on Scoittish folk songs and the local St Andrew's Scottish Society of Invercargill - the southernmost (and possibly bleakest) Scottish settlement of New Zealand."
