Heritage ~ Irish Tenors
Heritage ~ Irish Tenors
While it may not have the sense of drama and excitement of a live performance, the newest collection from the Irish Tenors is a wonderful recording.

Some people enjoyed those films, others thought they were pointless and added nothing, either way, that's what's on these dvd's. Aside from that this is a great set and contains a lot of special interviews and bonuses. And, the audio and… Read more
