Muze PNote The twelve bells of Christchurch Cathedral in Dublin are the inspiration for this CD. The bells are rung twice every Sunday, and on special occasions such as the inauguration of the president, or ringing in the New Year. Essentially a Christmas album, this 1991 release features performances by an extraordinary cast of guest musicians sitting in with The Chieftains.
Muze PNote Highlights include "The Wren in The Furze," composed and sung by The Chieftains' own Kevin Conneff, and Elvis Costello's passionate vocal on "The St. Stephen's Day Murders." However, the most moving song on THE BELLS OF DUBLIN is Rickie Lee Jones's version of "O Holy Night." Her low, restrained singing style is entrancing, even sultry. At the song's climax, the sudden conviction of her voice is startling. All the instrumental work on this CD is top-notch, validating traditional Irish music, and making it accessible to modern ears.

Producer: Paddy Moloney
