Cascades of SongClare Festival of Traditional Singing 1991-1999(No catalogue number)Available from ITMA at €20.00 plus postagePipers anxious to add a few airs to theirrepertoire (or even – heretical thought! – afew songs), could not do better than to pur-chase this newly-released compilation of per-formances from the concerts which took placeat the Clare Festival of Traditional Singing. This event was one of the many brainchilds ofthe late Tom Munnelly’s fruitful imaginationand, like many of his enterprises, made agreat contribution to the world of song andthe cause of singing.The performers featured on the CD includethe finest traditional singers in Irish and inEnglish, and all styles of singing and of song,and both sexes, are fairly represented.Róisín Elsafty’s heart-stopping rendition of“Eileanór a Ruin” is the most obvious itemthat pipers might get in their sights as an air,but it is not alone. Local classics like “LoughErne’s Shore” and “The Rose of Ardee” rubshoulders with naturalised imports such as“The Banks of the Nile” and global epics like“The man who came home from Pretoria”. Performers of Irish language songs includeÉamonn Ó Bróithe, Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin,Áine Uí Cheallaigh and Maighréad & TríonaNí Dhomhnaill.The CD is available from Claddagh Recordsand from the Irish Traditional Music Archive,www.itma.ie.8With the exception of tracks 8 and 10, the airand the jigs, the playing is accompanied byvarious combinations of keyboards, guitars,drums and bass.1 Song: Lough Erne Shore2 Reels: Ríl an Eargail - Errigal / DandyDinny Cronin3 Hop jig / reel: An Slipéar Airgid - TheSilver Slipper / Ar an bhealach óGhleann go Carraig - The Glen road toCarrick4 Song: Úrchnoc Chéin Mhic Cáinte5 Baroque: Handel's Gigue for Keyboardin G6 Song: Airdí Cuain7 Highland / reels: Aodh Mac GiollaEaspaig - Hugh Gillespie's / PádaíSpórtmhar - Sporting Paddy / Píobaireón Chéideach - Piper from 'Céideach'or Bonny Bunch of Ferns8 Air: An Chúilfhionn - The Coolin9 Song: Líontar dúinn an Crúiscín10 Jigs: Cnoic Aitinne Liatroma - WhinnyHills of Leitrim / Páidín Ó Raifeartaigh- Paidin O Rafferty / Miller's Maggot11 Reels: Tommy Peoples' / Ríl MhicChathail - Mac Cathal's / Buntata agusSgadán12 Jigs: Anagaire / Teach Bhrighde13 Song: I wish my love was a Red RedRose14 Barn dances: Rogha an Halla Rince /Ballroom Favourites
