Crossing the Bar: Folksongs from Staff and Students of St. Mary's College.

The St. Mary's College students chose to sacrifice their Easter vacation due to Covid, so as to be able to finish the school year.  While they were here, they wanted to do something to extra to help others and have something to look forward to. We decided to record a Folk CD to provide good music to the community and help lift spirits. These are some of the favorite songs here at the College.

Songs include:
  1. Country Life
  2. Leave Her, Johnny, Leave Her
  3. Mollymauk 
  4. Chickens in the Garden
  5. If I Were a Blackbird
  6. Crossing the Bar
  7. Back in Durham Gaol
  8. Bonny at Morn
  9. Keep You in Peace
  10. John Kanaka
  11. The Wreck of the Dandenong
  12. Mingulay Boat Song
  13. When the Snows of Winter Fall
  14. The St. Patrick Battalion
  15. Charming Hats
  16. St. Mary's College Song

Great music!

Wonderful CD with a very professional and excellent recording from a private studio. All of these songs should be included in the Angelus Press’ second edition of their folk song book *wink wink nudge nudge*! I highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates good music. Buy it!
