Ireland is rich in literature that understands a soul's yearnings, and dancing that understands a happy heart.
Ireland - a land so rich in historical mystery. Whose green fields and gentle breezes carry their own silent
message of tranquility.
Noirin Ni Riain has captured and managed to preserve some of the oldest Irish folklore songs ever written.
Each of the nineteen memorable tunes contained on this one audio was taught by a Cork Singer, Pilib O’Laoghaire
(1910-1976). Miraculously they have survived for centuries, passed down from one generation to the next. With
the creation of Stor Amhran (A Wealth of Songs) the world now has a piece of history that can passed
down for many more centuries.
Noirin Ni Riain’s haunting voice lends a sense of true Celtic authenticity to this collection. It is like
you’ve been sent back to the turn of the century when these songs were sung by many bonny lads and lasses. I was
thrilled that she put such a large collection on one audio. Usually similar titles offer only half of what this
Those who seek the best of the Celtic world should definitely experience Stor Amhran (A Wealth of
Songs). You will find each track is a piece of rare gold. Not many audios exist that can offer the listener
such a wealth of music treasures. Very highly recommended.
