The album is a diverse mix of songs from Ireland, England, Hungary which are translated into Gaelic, as well as self-composed songs and traditional Gaelic ones. The band felt that it was important to record their own material such as 'Gun Dòchas' by Rachel, 'Phòs Iain Ailean' by Fiona and 'Faoiseamh' by Brian. All member are also respected traditional singers which can be heard on songs such as 'Mala Chaol is Beul Tana' sung by James, 'Fhalbh Oirre Ho' sung by Rachel and 'A Phiutharag 's a Phiuthair' by Fiona. There are songs on the album which have also been translated/adapted into Gaelic - 'Èirich Isean Èirich' from Hungarian, 'Òran Celia' from English and 'Hò Rò Mo Bhàta' from Irish Gaelic.

While the Brian and Rachel are the primary instrumental accommpaniest in the band, the arrangements on the album are beautifully augmented by the playing of respected session musicians Euan Burton on bass, Matheu Watson on guitar and whistles, and Jim Sutherland on percussion.

'The stark repetition in group name, album title and label belies the imagination at work in the beautiful music that Cruinn create. Featuring four strong and distinctive Gaelic singers from Scotland and Ireland, the group draws on both original and traditional songs as well as material from some surprising sources on this lovely debut. Most surprising will be the conversion of the English parlour song Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes into a surrogate Gaelic psalm-love song, Oran Celia, of remarkable soulfulness, although Brian Ó hEadhra's Gaelic reading of a Hungarian folk song, Éirich Isean Éirich, runs it close with a superbly grainy performance. Elsewhere, Mackenzie and Ó hEadhra with fellow singers Rachel Walker and James Graham, and producer Jim Sutherland, conjure up a Clannad-like sound on Gun Dóchas and generally marry marvellous lead and backing vocals, cannily deployed percussion, guitar, double bass, keyboards and whistles in a programme that's strikingly contemporary but rich in the character and warmth of the Gaelic music tradition.'
