Item description for The Dawning of the Day by Ronan Tynan...
For his second solo release, the former Three Irish Tenors member has decided to concentrate on songs of faith for which, given his oft-repeated history of triumphing over various obstacles, he would seem to be ideally suited. As on his debut effort, the orchestral arrangements are florid and the context strictly middle-of-the-road. For many listeners, his 9/11-vintage, a cappella rendering of "Amazing Grace" was a high point of his career, and one or two more sparsely arranged or even unaccompanied tracks might have been perfect for this album. There is no material of deeply Celtic context, other than "Morning Has Broken," a song associated with British folk singer Cat Stevens which was in fact lifted note-for-note from a Scottish Christmas carol called "Leanabh An Aigh." Tynan performs it as a duet with country star Vince Gill, who actually sounds more in synch with the soaring folkloric purity of the melody. Basically, Tynan is a fine example of what a pop tenor should sound like; as with Andrea Bocelli and others of that ilk, he aims to please and this he does surpassingly well. --Christina Roden
Album Description "When Ronan sings the clouds cry but the sun turns up sooner than it would have."Bono

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dawning of the Day?
Disappointing audio quality Mar 8, 2007
This recording did not have the depth, clarity or inspiration that the "Ronan" CD has. There's just no comparison. The songs of course are more gentle and thoughtful, but the recording just doesn't show me the quality and "ring" of Ronan Tynan's voice. Good, but not great. "Ronan" on the other hand was exceptional!
Great Gift Feb 13, 2007
This was a gift for a neighbor who is a big Tynan fan and she loved it.
Brief Review Jan 9, 2007
About the same quality as "Ronan" which was also a very strong album, the use of the word 'awesome' is not overstating how great this CD is...
Ronan Tynan, The Dawning of the Day Jan 9, 2007
This CD fits a quiet, contemplative mood. The songs are done so well by Ronan - what a great voice!
Best Yet Jan 6, 2007
This is by far his best CD yet. I even e-mailed his website and told him just that.I have four other CD's of his including a Irish Tenors one, This is the best.
