I think I'd agree with Ezio's enthusiasm for this album. Shortly after I saw one of the first songs Ezio posted from this album, I saw the CD in a clearance rack. Best $2.95 I ever spent, almost. Sean Tyrrell's songs are very thoughtful, interesting presentations. I think Ezio has given songwriter names as he's posted the songs, so I won't belabor that. The almost-title song, "Cry of THE Dreamer," is a poem by John Boyle O'Reilly, set to a traditional tune by Tyrell. Many of the other songs are old poems with tunes written by Tyrell. Excellent stuff.
The album is called "Cry of A Dreamer," Hannibal CD #HNCD 1391, issued in 1995.
