The Horn used to record the McCabe Songs was a very old three hundred thousand series Conn 28d from approximately 1952. The bell was pretty much gone by the point of this recording so the sound was unfocused by today's standards. However, the piece is not heard very often and deserves more performances. I still enjoy listening to my wife's wonderful voice and decided to put it on the site to share.
