Irish Tenors Live in Belfast 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 16 reviews.

Anthony and Ronan are marvelous; but this one doesn't have the magic the first one did. It sounds more like the Three Tenors instead of the Irish Tenors. When John came on for the two songs he was able to do, the magic was back immediately. The three of them blend perfectly. But without one of them it just isn't the same. I really wish they would record it again when John is able to come back.

I prefer the more classical vocal style of Finbar Wright to that of John McDermott, and Wright's style seems to blend more with that of Tynan and Kearns. The McDermott solo was moving. For better or worse, McDermott's voice is clearly discernable among the three on the selections they sing together. Another reviewer gave this three star rating, and I feel it deserves better. All of the songs were excellent, and the orchestral arrangements were skillfully composed and executed.

Some of the songs I had not heard since my childhood before the Cork Opera House burned, when everyone my family knew seemed to have a bit part in Maritana and everyone sang opera in Cork. This album is a gorgeous piece of nostalgia although some of the songs are newer. Finbarr Wright did just fine and added to this album despite short notice and scant chance to practice with the others. I gave it 5 stars

The songs on this album are excellent choices, but the voices of the three tenors don't blend as well as the originals.

This album has a great choice of songs. Finbar Wright is a tenor of top rank. His voice has a most beautiful lyric quality, resonance, power and superb control. Those who have not heard him sing are missing a truly wonderful experience.

The Irish Tenors, even with a change in the makeup of the trio, continue to enthrall listeners with their choice of music, their magnificant voices, and their Irish charm. Whether new or old, the songs they sing continue to delight. The past year has only improved their voices and their stage presence. Absolutely wonderful!!

This is a wonderful album that beautifully showcases the extraordinary talent of these men - each with his own style. Anthony Kearns continues to enthrall with such diverse selections as There Is A Flower That Bloometh (an aria from the Irish opera Maritana), and the fun Phil the Fluther. I impatiently await his first solo CD which I hope will be released by summer. Songs which will touch your heart include Ronan Tynan's Scorn Not His Simplicity and John McDermott's The Last Rose of Summer. It was exciting to be introduced to another talented tenor - Finbar Wright - on songs such as Green Isle of Erin. This is a CD that I will continue to enjoy until I wear it out. I'll have to be sure to have a spare.

I agree with the lady from Cork. This is wonderful music, sung beautifully. John Mc Dermott is a good singer but cannot match Finbar Wright. Finbar's voice also blends better with Anthony's and Ronan's. Mc Dermott's solo is very moving, as well. My father often spoke of the Cork Opera House!

This is the greatest album of Irish music ever! Finbar Wright is magnificent, his voice soars and flies. Anthony Kearns voice is sheer heaven , and Ronan Tynan's is emotional and strong. These voices blend and fuse like a beautiful fabric woven by angels. Please, more, more, more. Mr. McDermont is not missed as his voice is not of the same calibur as these tenors.

Unlike others I feel John McDermott¿s distinctive voice is sadly missed from this CD. The original Irish Tenors appealed to a wide audience and were just that ¿ original. The blending of three distinct and different voices and styles gave the performance much of its impact with the resulting amazing harmonies. This seems more of an attempted copy of `The Three Tenors¿. Trained and more technically perfect voices do not necessarily mean `better¿ nor do they guarantee entertainment pleasure. Finbar Wright has a pleasant enough voice, but his delivery drags, the pacing is monotonous and his songs often lack feeling. Perfectly good ballads are sung as operatic arias. Highlights - Anthony Kearns singing just about anything, but particularly There Is A Flower That Bloometh and Phil The Fluthers Ball; Ronan Tynan¿s Lift The Wings and Scorn Not His Simplicity; Finbar Wright, in less serious style, singing Are Ye Right There Michael?; John McDermott¿s emotional rendition of The Last Rose of Summer. And with the original tenors rejoining in Red is The Rose, the magic is back. If you prefer a performance more serious and classically orientated in both content and style then you will no doubt enjoy this CD. If you enjoyed the more middle-of-the-road style of the original some of this may be less appealing. In our house it does not have the same instant play-it-again appeal and some tracks are always skipped. For us The Irish Tenors will always mean the original sound of McDermott, Kearns and Tynan.

This album is absolutely beautiful. Finbar Wright is amazing! I was fortunate enough to see the Irish Tenors in concert,and I'm going to be seeing them again this summer. Although I love their other albums,I'd give this one an A+ too. Congrats to the Tenors on another fantastic piece of work!

Not since Pavarotti's heydey has a great voice like Anthony Kearns come along. All 3 tenors on this CD have fine voices. (McDermott did well enough on the previous CD, but isn't in the same league as the 3 on this one.) I hope Anthony Kearns will do some solo work, though--both Classical Opera and Irish Traditional, too. I'd buy those CD's in a New York Minute!!!!!!

Outstanding!!! Excellent vocal collaboration. The quality of the recording is top notch for a live performance, it's almost as if the performers were right there in your living room.

I have always enjoyed John as a solo artist and was hugely entertained by his work on the first Irish Tenors Cd, but I have to confess that the arrival of Finbar Wright on this CD elevates the quality far beyond my expectations. Finbar is a true tenor with an amazing vocal gift which combined with Ronans power and Anthonys silky perfection provides an exquisite harmonic blend. They have raised our expectations and succeeded magnificently.

I am hearing impaired. Does anyone know how to get the words to these songs? I bought the tapes (Ellis Island & Live from Belfast) hoping I could use closed caption but it does not list the words. I love the sound, but would like it more if I knew what they were saying. rlatham@clearsource.net

Okay, so I don't own this Cd, but I have heard it. i didn't give this CD one star just because it is classical music. Some Classical musicians have a lot of talent. I'm sure. I think the Irish Tenors voices are painfully high. If they sang lower and used music with a little bit of a backbeat, they could be decent.
