I've been enjoying this lovely CD recently. The tunes are quite polished, moderate in tempo and dynamics. Makes a nice change from your rough ceilidh band recordings.
The Downfall of Paris
The Scotsman Over the Border / Hartigan's Fancy
The Lodge Road
Da Auld Resting Chair / The Derry Hornpipe
Barney Brallaghan / Ride A Mile
The Celtic Lament
Jockey to the Fair
Ni Fheicim Nios Mo Thu A Mhuirnin
(I Won't See You Anymore, My Dear)
The Three Sea Captains
The Bonnie Lass of Bon Accord
Hurry the Jug
Humours of Bandon / Planxty Maggie Brown
Here's a question. The tune "Ni Fheicim..." is the same melody, note for note, as Stephen Foster's "Gentle Annie". What do you suppose is the reason? Are the Irish now borrowing from the Americans -- that would be a switcheroo!
