Overview

Following their top-selling Ellis Island, a tribute to the Irish immigrant experience in America, and the Christmas-themed We Three Kings, the Irish Tenors look to their Heritage on this collection of familiar songs. Anthony Kearns, Finbar Wright, and Ronan Tynan lend their potent voices to such favorites as "Danny Boy," "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen," and "Song for Ireland," backed by the great London Symphony Orchestra and capped with a rousing "God Bless America." It's a stirring Emerald-Isle program that fans of this popular trio won't want to miss.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Joe Viglione
With Ronan Tynan's exposure during the Red Sox/Yankees battle for the American League East 2004 title the Irish Tenors offer a two-minute-and-forty-two-second rendition of "God Bless America" as the bonus track on this 16-song collection entitled Heritage, though a shorter version closed out their 2001 release, Ellis Island. The trio are quite spirited here, taking on Celine Dion's Titanic film theme, "My Heart Will Go On," "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" and other favorites, and giving their audience exactly what is expected of them. Though six of the titles have appeared on previous recordings, "Danny Boy" on Ellis Island, "Red Is the Rose" on Live in Belfast, just to name a couple, the fifty-five-minutes-plus will satisfy the trio's fans as Anthony Kearns, Finbar Wright and Tynan work their voices into the Arnie Roth conducted the London Symphony Orchestra. Recorded on location at the London Symphony Orchestra St. Luke's Centre in London, the material was taped by Abbey Road Studios Mobile. The "Dublin Medley" has exceptional charm, a combination of "Dublin Can Be Heaven" and "Rocky Road to Dublin" which contains few surprises, but will perpetually delight.

Most,if not all, of the titles on the CD are songs that we faithful have heard in "the boys" live concerts, and that is just fine with me. I have been to several of the concerts and have wished that I could have listened to them over and over. The gifts that these men have in their beautiful voices is not something that is easily merely tasted, it must be savored. Now at last we get to savor.

Having never heard some of the songs on the cd, I know that it will be beautiful. These men each have a special gift. Alone, they each are wonderful. Together they are truly magnificent.

The Irish Tenors have once again outdone themselves. A blend of the old traditional Irish songs with new orchestrations, songs previously unrecorded, and new songs. I love My Heart Will Go On. Also I'm finally glad that Whiskey in the Jar is available on a CD. I loved this CD. They just get better and better. I can't wait until they come to Pittsburgh again. I've seen them 3 times and they just better each time. This last Christmas concert was the best.

while i own all of the irish tenor cd's, and this one continues their tradition, i would hope that people who enjoy this cd, and especially the track entitled song for ireland, would listen to mary black sing this, her signature song. no matter how well ronan performs here, no one sings this song better then mary.
