Irish Folk Songs Robert Chorale Shaw
Irish Folk Songs CD (1992) 5 stars

Irish music In these mostly unaccompanied * folk songs, Robert Shaw is freed from the concerns of an orchestral accompaniment and able to focus on refined choral singing, showcasing why he will be remembered as one of the great choral conductors of all time. A well-blended choir often sounds thin; a full-voiced choir, as in the wobble-fest of many an opera chorus, rarely blends. Shaw's chorale, however, here displays the full-voiced and beautifully blended singing that was its hallmark, and Alice Parker's arrangements go far to celebrate this ensemble's strengths. The artful mixing of a pure *-tenor sound with a resonant bass sound makes "Avenging and Bright" one of this disc's high points. In "Johnny, I Hardly Knew You," the whole rich palette of the chorale's sounds combine to create a stirring, carefully paced dramatic tableau. In several of the selections, Parker incorporates the * harp to gentle, inobtrusive effect, nowhere more affectingly than in "My Gentle Harp" (sung to the tune of "Londonderry Air"). Of the several fine soloists heard on this recording, Raymond Murcell stands out for his exceptionally attractive solo in the rollicking drinking song, "To Ladies' Eyes." 2000 Reissue Of This 1968 Album

Irish music This is a well-chosen 22-track, 68 1/2-minute, digitally remastered compilation of John McCormack's recordings of *-oriented songs, ranging from traditional material to songs that were recently written when performed. Six of them feature only piano accompaniment; among the other tracks, two come from * composer Victor Herbert's operetta Eileen and feature Herbert's own orchestra under his baton. The age of the recordings (dating from 1910 to 1930) has not been masked by noise-reduction techniques, but McCormack's ringing tones still come through, and his renditions of these frankly sentimental songs have an emotional resonance not found in his more classical efforts. ~ William Ruhlmann Selections recorded 1910-30.
