White’s Hotel was the venue for this recording with Albert Lacey who relates that ‘The Barn’ in the hotel was one of the locations for the performance of short operas. At that time schools came to these performances, and this kindled young peoples’ enthusiasm for opera music. Albert’s occupation as a post office worker brought him to many counties around Ireland over 15 years. He worked with the Revenue from 1970. He describes how the Gramophone Society played a big part in promoting the world of classical music to the Wexford people. His own involvement was as front-of-house man, and he has many anecdotes to relate associated with this position.
