Product description SHIPS SAME DAY – FROM NEW YORK CITY EXPECT DELIVERY IN 3 TO 5 DAYS Just a year after their smash breakthrough debut album–itself still riding high in the charts–the Irish Tenors have added another delightfully varied collection to their discography. Live in Belfast again showcases the group’s obvious concert charisma from a performance given in February 2000. It’s a generous smorgasbord of medleys, traditional numbers, and songs from popular sources (including “Scorn Not His Simplicity,” which Sinead O’Connor has interpreted)–mixing nostalgic sentimentality with selections of bittersweet melancholy. Binding the whole together is the unmistakable stylish charm of the Irish Tenors, whether singing in solos or in ensembles. But the biggest surprise for fans already hooked on the Tenors is the introduction of Finbar Wright as replacement for original member John McDermott. Wright’s bright, romantic voice easily wins over a potentially skeptical crowd–especially in the dreamy “Isle of Innisfree”–and blends nicely with his colleagues. (McDermott, who had to bow out of the performance due to the death of his mother, makes a surprise appearance to solo in a memorable and touching “The Last Rose of Summer”–given as a tribute to his parents–and to rejoin the Tenors for “Red Is the Rose.”) The arrangements by Tenors producer Frank McNamara are played with zest by the Orchestra Warsaw Sinfonia. –Tom May
The Irish Tenors Live in Belfast Review
Some very good songs but not the Rebel songs like in The Irish Tenors. Also, the lyrics to the songs were not included like The Irish Tenors. That would have been good to learn the songs for our upcoming trip to the Emerald Isle. -Read Reviews-
very nice music.
