pastorpest Recordings of Thomas Moore's songs (31) RE: Recordings of Thomas Moore's songs 24 Mar 00


I really enjoy "Dear Harp of My Country" by tenor and Irish music scholar James W. Flannery. What you get are two CDs and a book that is a biography and analysis of Moore's music. Flannery's book captures the soul of the man and puts the music in context. His singing is accompanied by Janet Harbison on harp. She is the leader and founder I believe of the Belfast Harp Choir. The book & CDs package is published by J. S. Sanders & Company, Nashville. ISBN 1 -879941-36-8. Flannery has tried to reproduce how the songs would have been done by Moore: there is a formal drawing room quality to the music. But I truly value having the book & CDs and have learned much about Moore from them.
