Music Review - Home for Christmas, The Irish Tenors
But don't take our word for it - here are some excerpts from the reviews we've read:
From Joan in Toronto: "Breath-Taking!"
From Wanda, USA:
From a reviewer in Arkansas: A Masterpiece.
From a reviewer in Colorado: Christmas music has never been so beautifully sung!
From another reviewer in Colorado: This is a powerful album, the best new Christmas CD I've heard in a long while. The songs are traditional, But performed and recorded with a sensitivity and emotion I have not heard in years. I played it three times the first night I brought it home!
From a reviewer in NY: A Christmas Treasure.

The Round Towers
The Round Towers of Ireland are remarkable among the world's ancient monuments; one author has called them 'Elegant, free-standing pencils of stone.' Today, 65 survive in part or whole. Hand-crafted in native stone and cemented with a sand, lime, horsehair and oxblood mortar - a technique imported from Roman Britain - it's said by many historians that they were built by monastic communities to thwart Viking invaders. And yet, there's reason to believe that the towers were built long before Christianity came to Ireland. Whatever their origins, monasteries did indeed flourish where the round towers existed. And why not. These imposing edifices provided a watch tower, a keep and a refuge.
