The History of The Irish...Worldwide
In one of the only known recordings of W.B. Yeats' voice, he reads his poem, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree."

I did my history thesis on W.B. Yeats and the Literary Revival. When I first heard this recording- after years of reading his work and a full year of studying all of his writings- it brought tears to my eyes to hear his voice for the first time. I still remember that moment. I wrote a poem about it at the time- perhaps I'll post it sometime.
How lovely to be able to hear the voice of the Artist of our Irish background . Firm .strong.
