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.
