    "John's Gospel - from The New Testament in Scots"

    Wonderful!!

    As a sassanach, I was brought up in a house ringing with this beautiful accent, so for me, it is nostalgia with a capital N!

    I may have forgotten a lot of the dialect, but who cares, the intonation and narration as a whole is faultless, moving, and, for me, comforting.

    Thank you so much, Tom Fleming, more please! I could listen to you all night . . .
