Mary Hopkin Spirit cd
Recorded in 1989 and unavailable for many years, Spirit is a collection of Mary's favourite Classical pieces. 
 
The album was produced by Benny Gallagher, who with Graham Lyle had written for Mary in her Apple Records days. Alan Park, a founder member of Beggars Opera, arranged and played most of the tracks, and Alan Clark of Dire Straits arranged and played on the version of Schubert's Ave Maria.
 
Spirit adds another dimension to Mary's performances on record.
 
Her liner notes state that there are, "No aspirations to Classical accuracy here," and the vocals are all the more breathtaking because of it.
