Wonderful distinctive voice - well done Michael! My 2nd favourite Burns poem!

I was there that night. What you don't hear on the recording is the sound of the audience singing along to the chorus, with only a few voices at first and gradually buidling with each chorus. Magical! Michael Marra deservedly got the longest applause of the night.

I watched this on TV at New Year and I have watched it 40 times since.Absolutely brilliant and moving. Burns would surely pat Michael on the back for such an amazing performance. I hope the BBC release this concert on DVD soon. as I only have a few more days to watch on i-player.

If ever a voice encapsulated the earthy origins of the Scottish folk song, and the people themselves, this is it. Marvellous.
