Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Irish Tenors' fourth album sees the trio of Anthony Kearns, Ronan Tynan, and Finbar Wright paying a sentimental musical tribute to Ellis Island, the hallowed landmark that met the majority of immigrants entering the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. Needless to say, the Tenors' repertoire this time around is full of reflective ballads of love, loss, and homesickness, including the original "Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears" that opens this disc. Throughout this studio recording, the Irish Tenors are in fine form and backed by a soft-hued orchestra that never interferes with their soaring vocals. Traditional tunes include "My Wild Irish Rose," "How Are Things in Glocca Mora," and, of course, "Danny Boy" (the last sung by all three tenors, with refreshingly simple solo piano accompaniment). Thankfully, the threesome didn't forget that the immigrants had fun, too, as evidenced by some lighthearted fare; "The Courtin' Medley" features the Tenors at their most upbeat and comical. Ellis Island is a moving aural portrait of the struggles and triumphs of the Irish émigrés and a must-have for fans of the threesome. Newcomers may enjoy the Tenors' debut disc even more, as the earlier live album is a slightly more upbeat and spirited affair. --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars How Are Things In Glocca Morra? April 15 2004
By James Gallen TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Long a fan of Irish music, I have turned to a series of artists to satiate my appetite. Bing Crosby and John McCormick have been succeeded by the Irish Tenors.
This CD has a bit more of an Irish American theme as "Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears" and "God Bless America" illustrate. Interspersed among these tunes are traditional Irish tunes such as "Macushla" and "Croppy Boy", along with newer songs, such as "The Green Fields Of France" and "How are Things In Glocca Morra?"
The singing is excellent, the words understandable. I appreciate the inclusion the lyrics of the songs contained on the insert of the cover. These are songs you will want to learn, whose stories you will want to research. I have. Listen again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Historical CD Ever! Nov. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think this is best CD since Live in Belfast! it also has 2 songs not included on the video! it's a unique album of how the immigration to Ellis Island and New York turned out. It also has songs of the war such as The Green Fields Of France (The Best One) or, the croppy boy. I would recommend this to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you second or third generation? March 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who ever had a grandparent or great-grandparent come through Ellis Island, one song makes buying the whole CD worthwhile. Ellis Island speaks for all of us who admired the courage of our relatives who left homes forever and sailed to this safe haven. The balance of the CD is certainly worthwhile, but Ellis Island will continue to linger in your mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where is the Ellis island song? Jan. 3 2003
By sgopal2
Format:Audio CD
I originally bought this CD after listening to the performance during the Yankee Stadium tribute after 9/11.
I wanted to find the version of the song he sang about Ellis island. I found a song similar called Isle of Hope Isle of Fear, but it still wasn't the same as the version I remember hearing.
The CD is of excellent quality and lots of good soothing songs. But does anyone know where I can find the Ellis island song from the Yankee stadium memorial concert?

5.0 out of 5 stars When I was a Child July 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
"Ellis Island" brought me back to my childhood days when Americans sang many of these songs in school. The wonderful memories were plentiful, and vivid! This is a fabulous album and I have been memorizing each and every verse so I can,again, sing along!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Continued excellence July 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
Once again the tenors do what they do best. Nerve tingling and very emotive stuff, especially after seeing Ronan's performance at the rememberance for September 11. The vocal range and selections once again show the range these three guys can reach. As I live in the UK I live in hope that maybe one day a concert tour will take place. I will be first in line for tickets. Bring on the next album.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want to Live Inside This CD March 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
I saw the Irish Tenors -- Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan -- live in concert before I ever purchased this CD. I knew who they were, I'd seen bits and pieces of their concert videos on PBS between pledge breaks. I bought the "Ellis Island" CD the day after the concert. I've played it countless times and still cannot get enough of these magnificent voices. My father was an Irish tenor (although not in these boys' league!), so I'm genetically partial to the sound. Listening to some of the songs lifts me into an altered state of mind, like meditation. Anthony Kearn's voice in particular has a smooth clarity that soothes and caresses, like warm silk. His version of "Macushla" is gorgeous. Ronan Tynan is the more light-hearted and rollicking of the three; I know my father would love him and his version of "My Wild Irish Rose." Finbar Wright is a strong, romantic Irish tenor, reminding me of the "old school" tenors like Frank Patterson and John McCormack. His rendition of "Slievenamon" makes me want to waltz around a grand ballroom. "The Courtin' Medley," featuring all three singers, is the most fun one can have on a CD. And the final cut of "God Bless America" can't be heard enough in these times. If I have even the slightest complaint at all about this recording, it's that these three magnificent voices are so distinctive and unique in their interpretations of the music that when they sing in "unison" they don't, really. But with careful listening it's easy to tell who's who, and all three are just grand. If you like a good tenor voice (or voices) and all the variations of Irish music, don't miss the "Ellis Island" CD.
