In the Deep Heart's Core--Songs from the Poetry of W. B. Yeats
Joseph Sobol and the Kiltartan Road Ensemble Classical Digital 1005;
16 tracks, 51'00".
W. B. Yeats
doesn't fare as well on CD as live. The recorded sound
is somewhat dull, the mix doesn't always leave the words clear, and
the performance (by a mix of the same and different musicians) was
just not as good as we heard last weekend. I give this album a B-/C+
but recommend it for those with a particular love Yeats and poetry.
Everyone else should see it live.
