One comment

An oddity, this. Released on Peter Gabriel’s Realworld label (CDRW27), the album is a collection of unaccompanied "laments" by a host of well-known trad or folk musicians. Mostly a good listen, although the "reconstructed" keening of "One Breath" is a bit of a shock to the system and Christy’s cut-and-paste, quasi-dub version of Danny Boy will hardly win many votes. The artists are, in order:

1.Davy Spillane
2.Declan Masterson
3.Maighr
