I like John McDermott's voice, so without intending to be, I was a little standoffish with regards to Finbar Wright. Face it, John McDermott cannot be replaced. What you have in Finbar Wright is a strong, beautiful, noteworthy voice in the operatic style of Tynan and Kearns. Basically, he's won me over enough for me to want to buy his solo CD and if that's not a recommendation, I don't know what is. McDermott has a distinct and warm voice but Wright's is worthwhile too. Wright starting off the songs "Dublin in the Rare Old Times" and "Fields of Athenry" was ideal. There is something of Wright's voice that seems (at least to me) to be a combination of Kearns and McDermott's voices and well suited to the kinds of songs that McDermott would sing.
Perhaps the best song of the entire CD is "Scorn Not His Simplicity" by Tynan. A beautiful song I'd never heard before with thoughtful, stirring lyrics paired with Tynan's distinctive and expressive voice. Exquisite. If it were a movie, it would win an Oscar. Kearns stand-out songs are "Bantry Bay" and "There is a Flower That Bloometh." Both beautiful songs done full justice by Kearns. By the way, the "gloaming" of "Bantry Bay" means twilight. Didn't know that til I looked it up. "Dublin in the Rare Old Times" was warm and very well done. I liked "Molly Malone" but having first heard the slower, sadder Dubliners version I find it hard to get used to the Irish Tenors one. It seems rushed and the ending seems too abrupt. The "Fields of Athenry" by Wright, Kearns and Tynan was very well done but topped by the dramatic "Star of the County Down", also done by the three.

I have once again lost myself in the music of these wonderful men. They are more relaxed in this CD and their passion comes through brilliantly. Anthony continues to amaze in his range of songs. His "Phil the Fluther's Ball" cause the foot to tap and his "There is a Flower that Bloometh" and "She is Far From the Land" cause the heart to swell. Finbar is a wonderful addition and I look forward to hearing more from him. "Carrickfergus" is a song I have loved for years and "Isle of Inisfree" brings back the memories too. Ronan continues to delight and make us think also. His "Scorn Not His Simplicity" brings tears. The wonderful surprise of John McDermott made the performance that much more special. I want the Four Irish Tenors next!

After I had taped the "Live from Belfast" television program from PBS, I liked it so much that I wanted the CD also. I greatly admired John McDermott for singing the tribute to his parents so soon after his mother's death. Obviously the audience loved him, and I liked him too. However, Finbar Wright is an excellent tenor, and I would like to see him given more opportunities. As for Anthony Kearns, he has, to my way of thinking, a nearly perfect voice. I love the way he ornaments a note with trills, turns, and lilts. He can sing fun songs, patriotic songs, and sad songs equally well. He seems to put everything he has, emotionally, into his singing, and he touches my heart.

This CD is everything I hoped it would be! Finbar Wright is a great addition and I hope he stays when John McDermott returns; four Irish Tenors instead of three.

All of the magic and the beauty and the passion of "The Irish Tenors" are back with "Live in Belfast". The music is beautiful, the singing is inspired, and Anthony and Ronan are better than ever. The new man, Finbar Wright, has a wonderful voice and singing style, and he's a terrific addition. The CD is filled with perfectly chosen and perfectly sung songs from start to finish. If you love music you need to hear this CD!

I happened to turn (by Irish luck!) to Channel 12 a few weeks ago and saw the Irish Tenors perform. I was so impressed by their beautiful voices and performance that I had to order the CD right away. The next week I attended two St. Patrick's Day festivities where some of the same songs were performed, poorly in comparison. The genius of the arrangements by McNamara is equaled to each of the tenors' delivery. I am especially impressed the voice of Finbar Wright. The harmony and excellent vocal collaboration of all of them make for many hours of exquisite listening pleasure. I have been transported to another place and absolutely haunted by their songs. "The Fields of Athenry" is in a class by itself for story, melody and delivery. I highly recommend this CD.

I do not claim to be a musical expert. It has always been my contention that music which makes the listener feel good, which raises the spirits and makes the heart glad, is worthy of being heard. Such is this CD. I don't listen to it to search for flaws, flubs, failings and screw-ups. I listen to it because it makes me happy. I am of Irish ancestry, and this wonderful music stirs a core deep within my soul. I got to hear some traditional Irish folk music I'd never heard before. I would hope that all those who listen to this CD would choose to enumerate its merits based on the fact that this music is meant to lighten the soul. It never was meant to be held up to intense scrutiny, because it is folk music. These are the songs the people sang. They weren't meant to be grand, classical opera, and should not be regarded or critiqued as such. They are beautiful and moving, just as they stand, and I am grateful that God gave these four men such voices to sing these old tunes and to preserve them for the generations to come. God knows we need positive, beautiful music now more than ever.
