This collection focuses on Yeats's later works. It is organized geographically moving from pub, to theatre, to Ireland, to locales abroad, to the supernatural, to India, and finally to the listener. It is a carefully crafted assembly of songs with contributions from many players and speakers from America, Ireland, and Australia. The melodies are accessible to all while even the most serious Yeats reader will find a faithful and insightful rendering of Yeats's work and intent.
