'This is an outstanding release in every way. The scenario of Written on Skin is a straightforward story of illicit love, set in a time of the troubadors, but knowingly and constantly viewed from the 21st century, the characters stylised in a way that paradoxically makes them all the more believable.' Christopher Dingle
