First published in 2000, the original book offered the complete Bess Cronin collection, in Irish and English.
This 2021 expanded re-incarnation,with a 2-cd set, includes newly-discovered songs and a new appendix of background material
Songs of Elizabeth Cronin
Very enjoyable book with two CDs of traditional songs. I wasn't that familiar with Mrs. Cronin's singing before, but have quickly become a fan. Variety of songs, with complete lyrics and staff notation. CD is like a field recording without accompaniment, which is my favourite style of music. Book is paperbound on high quality paper. If ordering through mail, be prepared for additional postage charge due to weight. Even so, all fans and students of traditional Irish songs should get a copy of this book/CD. You will not regret it.
