Here is a fresh and multifaceted collection of Irish music for the holiday season that captures the sounds of our 2012 Irish Christmas Revels production. As you listen, imagine the scene on the Revels stage. We are on the deck of the RMS Carpathia, bound from Liverpool to New York in 1907. Irish families have booked passage for America with bittersweet emotions - dreams of better lives mingled with the pain of leaving their homes, probably forever.
With a band of fabulous musicians skilled in Irish musical tradition, both vocal and instrumental; our 60-member chorus; and the Cambridge Symphonic Brass, the breadth and beauty of this music will draw you into the joy, celebration, and mystery of the winter season.
