EDITORS’ NOTES

After years of turmoil and despair, the residents of St. Kilda evacuated their island in 1930. 86 years later, songs from the fated community were recorded by a surviving student of the island’s musical tradition. “Soay,” for instance, is a ballad with haunting melodies that conjures misty valleys and vast lakes.
