About: St. Kevin’s Church in Hollywood in West Wicklow is over 1000 years old and was used as a venue for the ‘Music Under the Mountains Festival’ in 1991. The Voice Squad sang there and found the natural sound quality of the church to be the best they had ever come across. They returned  later and recorded most of this disc there. The Voice Squad are a three-piece vocal group who sing ballads unaccompanied in the old traditional manner.
