    The Irish Tenors once again prove that interpreting the classics of the Emerald Isle's rich musical repertoire is handled best by homegrown talent. Anthony Kearns, Ronan Tynan, and Finbar Wright are steeped in the traditions of Irish balladry, and HERITAGE demonstrates that they rank among the foremost exponents in the field. Each is an accomplished singer in his own right, but when they join their voices together, they breathe new life into familiar tunes such as "Fields of Athenry," "Whiskey in the Jar," and "The Parting Glass." They even manage to make the ubiquitous war-horse "Danny Boy" sound fresh and vibrant.
    In addition to celebrating Ireland's own timeless songs, the album explores the island's influence on music beyond its shores. Fine examples of this include "Red Is the Rose," "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen," and even "South of the Border," the inclusion of which may seem out of place, but not when considering that its composer, Jimmy Kennedy, is a native son of County Tyrone. Following in the footsteps of John McCormack and Frank Patterson, the Irish Tenors take obvious pride in their role as Ireland's musical ambassadors.
