Richard Spencer Review: Songs of Elizabeth Cronin (73* d) RE: Songs of Elizabeth Cronin - to be reissued 23 Dec 07

Mine were the custard pies, Jim. I felt equally amazed and appalled by the review of the Elizabeth Cronin cds and Around the Hills of Clare.
My point at the time (and it applies to the reviews of both of these excellent productions) was that both reviewers concentrated at extraordinary and vindictive length on minor errors in the supporting documentation of purely academic interest, and thus their limited favourable comments on the wondeful singing seemed, at the best, grudging.
Both reviews did nothing at all for the listener or singer of traditional song, and I fear did even less for Mustrad which has been a much quieter place since.
