Summary

Summary

On Ellis Island, the Irish Tenors offer the soundtrack to their PBS special. The performance, which took place in New York City in early 2001, is a smooth and classy effort that complements the incredible talent and power that this group possesses. Although many of these songs may be familiar to listeners, the versions offered here are very good and give the songs the power and clarity they deserve. Especially good are the opening number, "Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears," and the sweeping "Love Thee Dearest." Those unfamiliar with this style of music may find this performance to be a good starting point, although this will mostly appeal to fans of the group and/or the genre who know what to expect from the Irish Tenors. ~ Bradley Torreano
