"Gerry Diver's 'Speech Project' is a pure gem of an album. I keep returning to it. I get carried away each time. The "Margaret Barry" tracks are heartbreakingly beautiful. The 'Martin Hayes' track gets directly to the kernel while the 'Joe Cooley' sets it all up perfectly. Gerry has produced a very special collection, lovingly recorded and accompanied. I feel privileged to be a small part of it. For me, this is essential listening."
