Overview

Long Journey Home is the soundtrack for the PBS/Disney production of the story and celebration of the Irish in America. It is produced by Paddy Moloney, which immediately sets it apart. Among others contributing to this dazzling aural painting are the Chieftains, Vince Gill, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, and the Irish Film Orchestra. This is a strongly consistent work, but if forced to pick out highlights, one might run from the haunting version of "Shenandoah" by Van Morrison and the Chieftains through the controlled power of Sinéad O'Connor's version of "Skibbereen" and the beautiful work of Sissel to the finale of "Long Journey Home (Anthem)," composed by Costello and Moloney and sung by Costello. This is a seamless blend of traditional and original Irish music that stands on its own as an outstanding piece of work, and at the same time not only complements, but also enhances, the documentary it goes with.
