Eist [Songs In Their Native Language] (1999 Ireland) @320

Years ago, it was difficult to find popular styled music available in the Irish Language. There are many artists today that are beginning to put the language into popular use such as the Corrs and Cathie Ryan. This CD, however, is the best of the best. It has all styles of music available and is worth the buy regardless of your enthusiasm for the Irish Language or not.
My personal favorite is Maura O'Connell's "Aisling Ghear". not only because it is absolutely beautiful but because it will cure those who wrongly feel that Irish is a gutteral language.
