\r\nAn historic collection, remastered on 2 CDs, of \r\ntwenty 78 rpm discs first issued by Gael Linn from \r\n1957 to 1961: 43 performances by outstanding solo singers \r\nin Irish from Irish-speaking districts and solo musicians \r\nfrom the rest of Ireland on fiddle, flute, accordion and \r\nuilleann pipes. with a 96-page companion booklet authored by Irish \r\nTraditional Music Archives head Nicholas Carolan. \r\nThe booklet contains the detailed story of how the \r\noriginal records came to be made, comprehensive notes on \r\nall the performers and on each track, in particular with \r\nthe full lyrics in Gaelic and English translation of the\r\nsean-nos songs which constitute about half the recordings. \r\nSince Gael-Linn's original goal was the promotion of the \r\nIrish language, it won't be a surprise that more than \r\nhalf of the tracks feature a real who's who of sean-nos \r\nsingers, representing the major Gaelic-speaking areas, \r\nDonegal, Connemara, and Kerry/Cork. \r\n
