All songs are by Alasdair Roberts (music) and Robin Robertson (words), except where noted. The poems 'Leaving St Kilda' and 'The Well of Youth' are by Robin Robertson. Leaving St Kilda' is from 'The Wrecking Light' (Picador, 2010) and reproduced by kind permission. Recorded at Chamber Studios, Edinburgh by Graeme Young, 10th and 11th December 2011 and at home in Glasgow throughout 2012. Congregation recorded by Luke Fowler. Robin Robertson recorded in London.

Hirta Songs, a song cycle about and inspired by the archipelago was released in 2013 on the label Stone Tape Recordings by musician Alasdair Roberts and poet Robin Robertson. In 2016 an album The Lost Songs of St Kilda was released. It included recordings of folk songs from the island played on the piano by Trevor Morrison, an elderly man who had been taught them as a child by a former St Kilda resident In late 2016, during cataloguing by the National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS),.

There's something about a mid-career self-titled album that heralds an apex in the artist's creative output. Even by his prolific standards, it has been a busy couple of years for Scottish singer-songwriter Alasdair Roberts. There was A Wonder Working Stone, the 2013 album billed to his group Alasdair Roberts & Friends, and Hirta Songs, his full-length collaboration with poet Robin Robertson. Then last year saw At Our Next Meeting, the excellent debut album of traditional folk ballads by his new group the Furrow Collective.
