Jill’s third solo album, Across the Narrow Seas, was recorded in England in 1996. It mainly showcases traditional songs from Scotland and Ireland, but also includes another classic song by singer-songwriter Ray Scudero, Through the Night; a powerful setting by Garnet Rogers of the 19th-century poem The Three Fishers, and Jill’s first poem-setting, The Conflict, by the late British poet-laureate (1968-72) C. Day-Lewis.

In autumn 2016, Jill re-released this album in CD format (it also remains available as a download through CD Baby). This was a limited edition, and the physical copies (discs) soon sold out.
