Disaster was prophesized for a Choir which sang Psalm tunes and Hebridean airs, but Hugh Roberton and his Choir proved (them) wrong... He made arrangements pieces of great beauty and warmth, shaped to fi t their voices... With this Choir, which became his life's work, he strove to preserve the folk music of Scotland, to make people realize that tunes they knew and loved were of great musical worth and that... there is a rich treasure house of melody which must not be allowed to wither and die. He strove, in his own words, 'to do a fine thing finely', and he succeeded nobly.' (Christi an Science Monitor).
