Album Review

Young New Zealand soprano Hayley Westenra's third album to receive an international release, Treasure is a personal collection of Irish and Maori folk songs, including "Shenandoah," "E Pari Ra," and "Danny Boy," recorded in Dublin together with a selection of classical-oriented tracks.
