If You're Irish (2008)

This album has 5 songs featuring Deirdre Shannon:

      Fields of Athenry

      She Moved Through The Fair

      The Isle of Inisfree

      Love's Old Sweet Song

      When Irish Eyes Are Smiling


This isn't a new album by any means, but I haven't seen it mentioned before here before, (at least not by this name).  Wink

The album has full, spectacular orchestration and I like all of Deirdre's songs on the album.

There are a bunch of places you can get it, including:

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/if-youre-irish/284994578
7Digital: https://www.7digital.com/artist/various-artists/release/if-youre-irish-965029
Amazon (Mp3 or CD): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079QF7CR3/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp

If there are budget concerns or you want to listen to it first, it's available on Spotify:

While I thought the powerful orchestration was great for most of the album, I found the arrangement of Galway Bay ... questionable.

Maybe I'm just biased because it's one of my favourite Chloë songs, but I found the arrangement to be highly over-orchestrated, almost comically so. I didn't think it fit the song at all. Oh well, I guess not EVERY song can be a winner. After all, it's not a Celtic Woman album.  Wink

You're welcome.

I've been re-listening to this a bunch recently. It's quite fun to listen to.

Deirdre's songs are all great, but I think my favourite track is A Nation Once Again. Even though it doesn't feature Deirdre, it's catchy and the powerful choir and booming orchestration are awesome!

The orchestration and choir are so strong there are a few songs where you probably couldn't even make out the words as they're performed. You'd have to know them in advance. LOL!  Cheesy
