Music Review - Home for Christmas, The Irish Tenors
But don't take our word for it - here are some excerpts from the reviews we've read:
From Joan in Toronto: "Breath-Taking!"
From Wanda, USA:
From a reviewer in Arkansas: A Masterpiece.
From a reviewer in Colorado: Christmas music has never been so beautifully sung!
From another reviewer in Colorado: This is a powerful album, the best new Christmas CD I've heard in a long while. The songs are traditional, But performed and recorded with a sensitivity and emotion I have not heard in years. I played it three times the first night I brought it home!
From a reviewer in NY: A Christmas Treasure.

The Irishman who designed
the Oscar satuette
Ireland’s first and most lasting contribution to the Academy Awards is at the ceremony’s very heart: the Oscar statuette was designed by Dublin- born Cedric Gibbons, an art director with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, who also became Ireland’s first winner. Although his first Oscar (for art direction on The Bridge of San Luis Rey) was the only award he received individually, Gibbons was nominated for 38 Academy Awards and received 11 Oscars. By most yardsticks, this record makes Gibbons the most successful Irish Oscar winner in history.
