    "Yeats, Music to the Mind and Soul"

    The narrator, after Down by theSalley Garden catches the spirit of Yeats and does a wonderful job of it. It could have only 2 things better. The first a downloadable list of the poems in order narrated, (I guess I will just have to do that myself.) The second, Down by the Salley Gardens seems a little stilted, but maybe that is just my ear. I have played Down by the Salley Gardens so many times on my tin whistle that the way the narrator spoke it and how I hear it in my mind clashed. Even with that, if you like Yeats, you will love this recording. I have a feeling that the CD I burnt of this will be replayed many times. It is just music to the mind and soul.
