Subject: RE: DT Correction: Grace (Frank & Sean O'Meara)
Just found this thread while looking for information on Frank O'Meara who wrote this wonderful song.
The song was memorably recorded by Jim McCann, formerly of the Dubliners, in 1996, on the album "Grace & Other Irish Love Songs". Brendan Quinn also does a good version on "Melodies & Medleys" from 1991.
Incidentally Steeleye Span recorded a version of Joseph Plunkett's poem "I See his Blood Upon the Rose" on their 2000 album "Bedlam Born" - great vocals from Gay Woods, but I'm not so keen on the arrangement.
Now Rod Stewart has recorded the song Grace on his latest album, so it is about to have a whole new lease of life ...
Joe in Dublin.
