Background:Mairéad Déiseach is a mezzo-soprano who studied singing to Diploma level with Jody Beggan in the DIT Conservatory of music. She is a Feis Ceoil prize winner for both solo and duet singing. Is múinteoir bunscoile í i Scoil Chualann i mBré. She is Co-Director of the National Children’s Choir as well as being the Musical Director of The Frascati Singers and is a regular soloist and conductor of Curtlestown Church Choir. A classically trained violinist, she also enjoys playing traditional music and likewise has long loved singing traditional Irish songs.
“Mairéad’s voice is so spellbinding that when I first listened to the cd, it felt like someone had sucked all the air out of the room. I felt breathless” Ruth Scott
“I already knew you had a great voice but I was pleasantly surprised to hear your command of different genres, especially the Irish traditional song.” Paul Brady
“In her various choice of songs for this CD, Mairéad Déiseach takes us on a journey of the voice. More importantly, she takes us on a journey of the emotions…of passion, of gentleness and of love.” Brendan Graham
The CD is well-named: ‘reflection’ – a throwing back of sound or light or… self – is also a call to thoughtful consideration. When we hear Mairéad sing these songs…these ‘reflections’…we are invited into the duality of her own space…of life and love.
