The Pulse of an Irishman
Irish and Scottish Songs arranged by Beethoven

...fresh, youthful, unpretentious singing
Opera News

cover of The Pulse of an Irishman
 Early in the nineteenth century, George Thomson was concerned that the traditional songs of the British Isles were being lost. In an effort to preserve them, he commissioned arrangements from the finest composers of his time, including Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven tackled the commission enthusiastically, although not without some grumbling regarding his fee. This new recording offers a selection of these entertaining and unjustly neglected pieces. All songs are performed in English, as intended by Beethoven and are accompanied with piano, violin and cello.

It's the combination of strong classical technique
combined with ease and naturalness of expression
that make this disc such a pleasure to listen to.
The Ithaca Times
