Mary Black — Orchestrated now a gatefold LP!
Featuring RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
A reimagining of 11 of Mary's favorite songs, orchestrated and produced by world renowned musician and composer Brian Byrne!
For more than 30 years, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. During that time, she has released 12 studio albums, all of which achieved platinum sales status and spawned countless hits. Here she performs on an album unlike anything she has done before; Mary Black Orchestrated. This album is a reimagining of 11 of Mary's favorite songs, orchestrated and produced by world renowned musician and composer Brian Byrne. The album features the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Byrne and is a stunning reinterpretation of songs such as "No Frontiers," "The Urge For Going," "Summer Sent You" and "Carolina Rua."
Embarking on this Orchestrated album is something Mary's greatly enjoyed.
"What a great honor to have some of my favorite recordings orchestrated by the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Brian Byrne at the National Concert Hall. I've picked songs that mean a lot to me, some well-known and other less known gems. I couldn't imagine how great they would turn out with Brian Byrne composing some stunning orchestral arrangements that have breathed new life into these songs. Hearing the RTE Orchestra perform them during recording in the NCH was truly moving for me. I'm really excited for the fans to hear this album" — Mary
