Subject: The Songs of Elizabeth Cronin
From: John Moulden
Date: 20 Apr 00 - 08:13 AM

Notice of New Publication

Elizabeth Cronin was recorded extensively in the late 40s and 50s by the Irish Folklore Commission, the BBC, Jean Ritchie, Alan Lomax and Peter Kennedy. She is regarded as one of the finest singers and repositories of song in both Irish and English to be heard at that time: Seamus Ennis called her (in Irish) "The Muskerry Queen of Song" - Muskerry being the area of south-west Cork in which she lived. Her best known performances include "Lord Gregory," "The Bonnie Blue Eyed Lassie," "The little Pack of Tailors." Songs such as "Sweet Lisbweemore" and "The Kangaroo" sung respectively by Andy Irvine and Christie Moore, were learned by them from her recordings.

Her entire repertory, compiled from the recordings, her own text notebooks and song lists,lists made by her son and other documents has just been published in book form. Edited by one of her grandsons, Dr Da/ibhí Ó Cróinín, it gives a picture of an extraordinary woman, a wonderful singer and an illustration of the full range of the repertory, in both languages, of an Irish traditional singer of great ability. It includes, family and regional background, all texts sung by her, tune transcriptions from the recordings, illustrative texts of songs mentioned only by title, photographs, notes and references. There are two cds re-mastered in the Irish Traditonal Music Archive by Harry Bradshaw with 59 tracks representative both of her repertory and the recordings.

The set (paperback only) costs £24.99.

Da/ibhí Ó Cróinín (editor): The Songs of Elizabeth Cronin: Irish Traditional Singer (Dublin, Four Courts Press, 2000) ISBN 1-85182-259-3

it is available also from Four Courts Press, c/o ISBS, 5804 Hassalo Street, Portland, OR 97213, USA

I am proud to have assisted with the research for this publication.

Ulstersongs (which I run) hopes to obtain a supply.

This is great news! Let me urge all Mudcatters to get this set. Elizabeth Cronin was a wonderful traditional singer with a great repertoire. Caroline learned "Lord Gregory" from her singing of the ballad, only a few verses of which were included on the Caedmon LP where it once appeared. To finally be able to hear the entire performance is a really exciting prospect.

Just back from the launch of this excellent package. Anyone with a serious interest in Irish song (both in English and Irish) MUST get this. It's both comprehensive and beautifully done. Mrs Cronin was quite old when the recordings were made - and it doesn't matter a damn! The quality of the singing and interpretation survives.

I know that John Moulden's Ulstersongs (see top of thread)has indeed got some supplies - he can be contacted through the Mudcat links page.

Indeed it is comprehensive and a wonderful job has been done on the indexing and cross referencing. (I note the inclusiion of Dan Milner's "Bonnie Bunch of Roses" as reference material among others)

Mouldy, I want a copy, please keep me one. Are you going to Ennistymon?

Just back from the Green Mountains of Vermont and delighted to hear about the Elizabeth Cronin book/cd package. I look forward to getting one asap.

I stopped into a pub in her home town last year and, after breaking the ice a bit, I asked a woman of 85 or 90 years if she knew of the famous Mrs. Cronin who had sung so many old songs for the radio. "Yes," she said, "she was very old!" I'm still trying to figure that out.

Mrs. Cronin lived in an Irish speaking "island" in Co. Cork. I'd heard her singing in English for many, many years. Only much later did I hear her singing in the Irish language and, I confess, I nearly fell off my chair when I did.

Im glad money was found to get this project to the public. I'm sure its absolutely first rate.

John Moulden is always up to something very good. Last time we talked back in March, I asked him what he was doing and he told me... but that was his CURRENT PROJECT; he didn't mention anything about this.

All the best,
Dan Milner

The recordings are magnificent and the quality incredible when one considers these recordings were made between 1947 and 1952.

I am steadily reading through all of the material in the book. There are some very interseting versions of songs that were not recorded but kept by Bess Cronin and noted down in her own hand.

I simply have not been able to put the book down since I got it last week end.

Hello... had to change my name, because they had trouble with my cookie or something- I was, for a short time, Kytrad (and still am at heart). Viper's the name of my little village, so it's OK. Just wanted to brag that my husband George Pickow and I had very much to do with the Elizabeth Cronin book. We visited in 1952, and she was staying with her sister Mrs. O'Connell in Lisbeemuir, Co. Cork (we were criticized somewhere recently for having "posed" her in a cottage when actually she lived in a fancy manor, but we sat before her sister's lovely old fireplace mainly because we were cold!). I suppose the reference to a manor referred to the family home, "The Plantation," which they have not lived in for many years now. When we met her, she actually "lived" with her son in Macroom. I was on a Fulbright scholarship and my project was to search for the source of my own (Ritchie) family songs in the Old Countries. We stayed for a week in that neighborhood, and the O'Connells were so friendly- we became "family" in no time at all. Started with a cuppa tea round that grand fireplace, and developed into endless singing and music and set-dancing and going-to-the-wedding-in-straw (Dan O'Connell made me a straw suit and I went as "the stranger" of the group. The whole little village turned out, and all became our friends; the descendants gave us a party 40 years later, and it was wonderful to me to see so many of them still here. Bess Cronin of course was gone, but the young'uns knew her songs, and they all sang for me! Don't want to take too much space and time here, but over half the photographs and tape recordings in Bess's book are ours. If you have the book, you know that, but reading this great thread brought it all back... it's one of the irreplaceable memories that sustain us.
I e-mailed Jean her password and instructions, and asked her to go back to the "kytrad" name. Please don't try to send personal messages to "viperky." Thanks.

Jean, the photos are absolutely beautiful (I especially like the two pictures of the two of you) and as I am listening to "Lord Gregory" right now I'll take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful recordings. They capture with clarity every pause, every subtle ornament, the quietness and surety of Mrs. Cronin's singing. I can see why the memories of your sojourn there are still so special to you.

For the life of me I don't know what took me so long to get this book. I realized, during a conversation with my good friend, Pat Broaders (Dublin born piper, bouzouki, and dordan player), that I had forgotten Dan Milner's recommendation to get this. I ordered it from Ossian, USA and received it yesterday. If you claim to be an Irish singer, or a folk scholar, you must have this collection. I sat up until the wee hours listening to the wonderful CD's and scanning the text. Like George Henderson, I doubt I will put it down until I have read it fully.

As I was scanning the book, I come to page 21, and there is Bess with our own dear Jean Ritchie. The picture of the two of them sitting on the bench is priceless. I am envious, dear Jean. To have sat for a cuppa, chatted and sung with this women must be a wonderful memory. I hope to do the same with you one day.

I am so excited to add this to my ever expanding collection. I expect it will be well worn in a very short time.

All the best,

Mick Lane

I had not seen this thread before, but I got my copy direct from Ireland as soon as it was available, think I saw a notice in Irish Music mag, or Dirty Linen, maybe. It's a Great piece of work, music is wonderful of course, but the accompanying book is well worth having as well, if only for the photos, as well as background on the songs. If you haven't got one yet and are at all interested in Irish Traditional Music, go on and get it.

Well now, I happen to think the above review is quite fair. And it does say that the CDs are the real treasure here, especially considering the faults of the book. I have them, and have spent far more time listening to the CDs than I have reading the book, as I agree with Fred McCormick's asssessment that considering how close the author was to the source and the community, we didn't learn that much about them at all, that can't be gleaned from other sources. But those are really trifling criticisms. The CDs are well worth the purchase price of the book, which is also an interesting read, particularly if you don't have much background on the singing tradition. Though if it is background on the singing tradition you're after, there are better sources. Sorta circular.

But I wanted to also mention that if you are interested in this woman's body of work, you should also have the CD and booklet "Roise na nAmhran: Songs of a Donegal Woman on RTE. The tapes to this one were remastered by Harry Bradshaw, and the liner notes and transcriptions were done by Cathal Goan, who works now for TnaG, and who married into the family, so knows the subject pretty well.

Martin, as I understand it, it isn't just this particular review of Fred's that has sparked controversy, though I followed the debate about it with great interest at the time. Fred has been one of the few who are very vocal in their criticisms about the poor quality of scholarship and writing about traditional music, and I agree with his assessment in that regard a million percent. Too much of what gets published is regurgitated stuff from previous questionable (and often badly romanticised) sources, or just plain bad writing and/or editing.

Hi all, I'm intrigued to come across this forum as I am Bess Cronin's relative. Her sister was my grandmother and I spent every summer in the house at Lisbwee that was so evocatively photgraphed by Jean Ritchie's husband. My mother was Margaret Cronin (Peg) who was born at Lisbwee - the youngest of a large family. My mother married a Herlihy from nearby Clondrahid and so became a Herlihy once more (her grandfather - Bess's father - was a Herlihy, too). My sisters and I are fascinated by the attention Bess attracts and it's true to say that her spirit lives on in our lives as we all like a sing song now and then!
