I’ve always enjoyed songs from Ireland.
And I usually enjoy songs sung in English.
I’m in luck. Today’s CD features both, performed by:
Dorothee WWohlgemuth soprano
Christine Wehler alto
Georg Poplutz tenor
Jens Hamann baritone
Martin Haunhorst violin
Bernhard Schwarz cello
Rainer Maria Klaas piano
These are terrific songs, filled with typical Irish lilt and pathos.
A good example of the former is Track 6 (“No. 12 English Bulls”). A good example of the latter is Track 14 (“No. 6 Sad and luckless was the season”).
Here. See for yourself. Here’s some of what I heard today:
This is a CD I could listen to again. It’s just a delightful assortment of Irish songs composed by a Classical master and performed by world-class musicians. How can you not like that?
