The Chieftains w/ Burgess Meredith

on their cd, “the bells of dublin,” the chieftains perform a unique version of Don Oiche Ud I mBeithil (To That Night In Bethlehem). Burgess Meredith (aka The Penguin for my generation) reads the piece in English, followed by Kevin Conneff singing it in the original Gaelic. It’s a beautiful piece of work. Then entire cd is very good — although i thought the jackson browne version of ‘the rebel jesus’ takes away from the otherwise traditional irish feel of the “the bells of dublin.”

i cannot find a download for just this song — the entire cd is available from itunes however.
