Marjory Kennedy-Fraser in Hebrides - early 20th Century

from Marjory Kennedy-Fraser, Songs of the Hebrides, page 99:

This mouth music for dancing is characteristic and exhilarating in the extreme... the electrifying effect of which I shall never forget... I can quite believe, as old people have assured me, that this voice music had a passionate quality exceeding that of any dance music produced by instruments.
