About this title


Since the late John McCormack I have heard no finer singer of Irish songs than James Flannery.—Ulick O'Conner

From the Back Cover:

Thomas Moore's Irish Melodies have been known and loved throughout the world since their composition in the early nineteenth century. Before radio and the phonograph, the sheet music for "Tis the Last Rose of Summer" sold one and a half million copies in the United States alone! The songs of Moore have now found a voice to bring them alive for a new generation. In Dear Harp of My Country, author and singer James Flannery presents the story of Ireland's first national poet against the backdrop of his nation's turbulent history, and restores the Irish Melodies to their spare, original settings, accompanied only by the Irish harp. The resulting text and recordings are a stirring tribute to the legacy of Thomas Moore, and to the enduring power of music and song within the Irish cultural tradition.

"A work of advocacy in the deepest sense. Flannery's voice--as singer and as writer--calls us to attention and advances Moore's claims with an ardor that surely would have delighted Moore himself. He manages to explicate the Irishness and exhibit the melodiousness that have always been central to the allure of Moore's epoch-making collection."--SEAMUS HEANEY, poet, winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature

"Blessed with a beautiful tenor voice and a remarkable feeling for the subtleties of poetic language, James Flannery also has the gift of knowing how to reach into what the Irish call uaigneas an chroi --the secret places of the heart."--BILL WHELAN, Grammy Award-winning composer of Riverdance
