5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan March 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A quote from the celebrated author, Alice Taylor, after hearing this album: " 'Faith of our Fathers' has lifted the dust sheet off old friends. They have come back into our lives and awakened buried memories."

This second collection of classic religious anthems of Ireland completes the collection begun in the First Album. Alongside such popular favorites as 'Sweet Sacrament Divine' and 'O Mother I would weep for mirth'come the all-time classics such as 'Ave Maria' and 'Panis Angelicus'. Needless to say, one does not have to be of the Catholic Faith to enjoy these beautiful testimonies to God; of course, I think it helps if there is a belief in a Supreme Being for the music is most surely divnely inspired.

The voice of Frank Patterson has been described as having 'a voice like sterling silver'; I'm not sure that I would use those words, but suffice it to say that it is an excellent and well-trained instrument and he sings these songs with much feeling and surely as a believer.

I find the voice of Regina Nathan equally pleasing and unlike many sopranos I have heard, she has flawless diction.

Iarla O Lionaird is the vocalist of the Afro-Celts and his voice is interesting and I'll comment no further because I have no expertise in tis area.

The supreme talents of so many people -arrangers, musicians,peroformers and others, have produced a truly excellent representation of Irish sacred music.

If you want a wonderful rendition of the songs you learned at your mother's knee, or at Sister Mary Brigid's knee more likely,this is the tape for you! Perfect for Catholics who want to refresh their own memory of traditional Catholic music, or who want to introduce their own children to hymns they love. This album is perfect also for the Music minister looking for a classical musician's interpretation of best loved traditional hymns to round out a collection of music for Worship Services.
While the hymns are pre-Vatican II, and a few probably pre-Tridentine, the presentation and musical excellence make for easy and nostalgic listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan March 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ireland, the Island of Saints and Scholars, has been a beacon of the Christian faith for many centuries. As a predominantly Catholic country, it fully embraced the trappings of the universal Church and made them their own. Devotions to the saints and to the Virgin Mary as well as to the Sacred Heart of Jesus resulted in the composition of many hymns dedicated to these personages. Moreover, because of such worship practises as Novenas, 40 hours devotions and Benediction, some of the greatest church music was written at the height of the Romantic Period.

This disc is an excellent representation of song material for worship that covers many of the above-mentioned ceremonies.

Although many of the hymns on this album are Irish in origin, others were adopted from countries, such as 'Holy God, we praise Thy name' (Germany)-'The Bells of the Angelus' (France). and 'Faith of our Fathers' (England).

Upon first hearing this disc, I found that I was quite familiar with many of the songs though they were not included in my formal religious upbringing, no doubt because they are not strictly Catholic!

The performance of the 2 soloists is absolutely beautiful!!!!Frank Patterson (tenor) sings with a deep resonant and vibrant voice with appropriate reverence. Regina Nathan (soprano) has a clear and seemingly effortless sound with flawless diction.

This is a really outstanding recording of interesting and varied hymns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired & Deeply Moving! April 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I cannot adequately express the feelings that this recording left me with. I was quite literally in tears - of warm reflection and joy. I have not been so moved since.... I can't remember. I can only surmise that this is an inspired and inspiring recording. I can't wait to hear part 2.
