|A beautiful book.
What a beautiful and uplifting book. One Voice tells
the story of Christy Moore's affair with music, family and life.
This frank unpretentious tale only confirms why this Irish legend
has attracted the most powerful of literary pieces (all
documented in the book) and given them musical immortality.
With lines such as
"What is it with people who go to the opera? Why all
the fur coats and tuxedos and jewellery-what is it? We went
to hear Pavarotti in the Royal Dublin Society and it was a right
gathering-talk about fur coats and no knickers. Corporate
boxes, business boxes, dirty boxes. Yer man disappeared for a
feed after every song. He took more bows .....such palaver.
......I was exhausted watching...", are pearls in the recalcitrant
journey that unfolds in One Voice.
More to come
