(A) Sheaf of Songs from Ireland

  • (The) Wee Boy in Bed
  • Wee Hughie
  • (A) Stoirin Ban
  • (An) Ardglass Boat Song
  • Padriac the Fiddler
  • (A) Sheaf of Songs from Leinster
  • (An) Irish Idyll in six miniatures, The fairy lough
  • (An) Irish Lullaby
  • (A) Dandlin' Song
  • (An) Old Woman of the Roads

  • Dirty work, 'John o' the North'
  • O dear! what can the matter be?

A likeable and unusual programme, with eight songs by Stanford all having character, and Bax’s arrangement of O dear, what can the matter be? bringing about a joyful conclusion. Bernadette Greevy’s voice, recorded in 1996, sounds somewhat worn, but is still true and often beautiful; she is an artist, and makes good use of her resources. Hugh Tinney plays well, and there is a useful booklet.'
