about

From the pen of Hamish Henderson, this is a Scots translation of a French poem by Jean Richepin (1849-1926), originally called ‘La Chanson de Marie-des-Anges’. ‘The Speaking Heart’ as a standalone phrase could be taken to mean something like ‘expression through song’ – making it a very appropriate album title if ever there was one.
