The CD Silly Stories in Song features an amusing collection of children’s songs that include truly inane selections such as Fooba Wooba John, The Cat Came Back, Alice the Camel, Reuben and Rachel, and Froggie Went a Courtin’. Somewhat more rational but still very enjoyable tunes include the Civil War favorite Goober Peas, Stephen Foster’s Camptown Races, and the “educational” song The Sailor’s Alphabet. The traditional Western favorites Sweet Betsy From Pike and Get Along Little Dogies can be heard along with Take Me Out to the Ball Game, a song that strongly resonates with the boys of summer. This CD, as with most of Mary's other CDs and Keltic Kaleidoscope CDs, is available at the special 3 for $15 price. Special pricing information can be found in the links at the bottom of this page.
Mary also has another children’s CD, Kids' Songs and Lullabies CD that includes songs for both very young and somewhat older children. Lullabies include All Through the Night and Hush Little Baby. For older children, Bingo, Grandfather's Clock and The Crawdad Song can be heard along with other selections.
Two Celtic CDs have also been released. The CD, A Celtic Journey, includes songs like Danny Boy, An Irish Lullaby and the Welsh lullaby Suo Gan popularized by the movie Empire in the sun. The other CD, Fields of Athenry, features the song of the same name by Pete St. John, along with selections that include The Ash Grove, Molly Malone, and Farewell to Nova Scotia.
American Pie features the Don McLean song of the same title and a wide variety of earlier American songs that include Grandfather’s Clock, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Sloop John B, Shenandoah and a medley of songs by George M. Cohan.
The CD Amazing Grace, perhaps not surprisingly, contains the track of the same name along with a number of other sacred favorites. Two of the most ancient songs are in Gregorian chant, The Magnificat and Salve Regina and date from medieval times. Other somewhat newer tracks include For the Beauty of the Earth, How Can I Keep from Singing and the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria. Holy Manna, sung in the style of the Sacred Harp tradition is another track on the CD. Simple Gifts can also be heard with several new verses provided.
